Reporting involves sending us a feed of information about the messages you
get (never the content; mainly the From: field's domain name and signature
information, plus an indication of whether you believe the message is
spam). That all gets aggregated into a database here and we compute
reputations based on the data we have across all reporting sites.

The data aggregation is backed by a MySQL database and the front end is a
PHP script that outputs JSON objects according to an experimental IETF
protocol. OpenDKIM also knows how to consume those JSON replies and
rate-limit questionable sources.

You can keep a local copy and generate a local database while also sending
stats to us if you like. You could use that to generate a DNS RPZ zone
if you like.

The aggregated stats on our side allows you to benefit from what others
are reporting, and also allows others to benefit from your reports.
