Email security under scrutiny: Examining SPF weaknesses

Cyber security researchers at BIFOLD found weaknesses in Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records, which protect email users from forged senders. The paper “Lazy Gatekeepers: A Large-Scale Study on SPF Configuration in the Wild” includes an analysis of 12 million domains’ SPF records and was now presented at the 2023 ACM Internet Measurement Conference.
