Even better! you can do all this in your browser. Bruno Harbulot had
told me this some time ago, but I only just tried it now.
Go to Firefox Preferences, selected Advanced, then select Encryption.
Click on View Certificates, and import the cert.pkcs file generated
The point your browser to the protected foaf https://www.pipian.com/rdf/tami/juliette-protected-location
You will first have to accept the server certificate and add it to
your trusted certificates, then when the server selects the page,
choose the certificate you just added to your store. You will then get
to see Juliette's protected information in N3.
So this works out of the box with most browsers I would think. Clearly
the user experience could be improoved. It would also be interesting
to think about what a browser with an RDF store could do, in so far as
it could have crawled your foaf files, and having found juliette's
foaf and cert signature, trust the site without asking you?...
