Clinton/Podesta 1-18, DKIM-verified-podesta-1-18.txt.zip, DKIM-complete-podesta-1-18.txt.zip

After a long day of waiting for scripts to finish and re-running them to cross-check the results, I am happy to present:

DKIM-verified-podesta-1-18.txt.gz, which consists of the Podesta emails (7526) which returned true for a test of their DKIM signature.

The complete set of the results for all 31,819 emails, can be found in:

DKIM-complete-podesta-1-18.txt.gz.

An email that has been “verified” has a cryptographic guarantee that it was sent even as it appears to you now.

An email that fails verification, may be just as trustworthy, but its DKIM signature has failed for any number of reasons.

One of my motivations for classifying these emails is to enable the exploration of why DKIM verification failed on some of these emails.

Question: What would make this data more useful/accessible to journalists/bloggers?

I ask because dumping data and/or transformations of data can be useful, it is synthesizing data into a coherent narrative that is the essence of journalism/reporting.

I would enjoy doing the first in hopes of furthering the second.

PS: More emails will be added to this data set as they become available.
