EBay, PayPal, Gmail partner on fraud prevention

EBay and PayPal have announced a collaborative effort with Google's webmail service Gmail to better protect consumers against fraudulent e-mails and phishing attacks.

According to PayPal, the effort is designed to stop the delivery of fraudulent eBay and PayPal messages to Gmail users by using DomainKeys and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) e-mail authentication technology, the company said.

"The Gmail team's decision to work with eBay and PayPal on this issue is a significant step forward in our fight to keep consumers safe from phishing and cybercrime," said Michael Barrett, chief information security officer of PayPal, in a written statement.

DomainKeys technology allows Internet service providers to determine if messages are real and decide if they should be delivered to a customer's inbox.
