So I can Identify a foaf:Person by its owt:PubKey, how do I identify the
wot:PubKey? According to http://rdfweb.org/topic/TrustVocabIssue the
fingerprint is not enough unambiguos and linking an external gpg file
has the problem that it contains the email-address (or is this
optional?). Another way could be to assign a httpsy to foaf files
(http://www.waterken.com/dev/YURL/httpsy/), but basically it's easier to
ask user to put some signature on the webserver rather than updating
their server. I'm not secure if PGP is the best choice for signing
web-content, but I never really understood why I need a https key pair
for the browser, a different one for my server, a key pair for SSH and
one for PGP is there a basic difference between these fomats, isn't
there one that's best for everything?

cheers,
