I have found a way to do this in N3

---------
@prefix log: <http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/log#>.
@prefix cert: <http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/cert#>.
@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>.
@prefix owl: <http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#>.
@prefix romeo: <https://romeo.net/#>.
@prefix : <#> .

#(D1)
:hasPrivateKeyFor a owl:InverseFunctionalProperty;
     rdfs:domain foaf:Agent;
     rdfs:range cert:PublicKey .

#(P9)
:client :claims { <> dc:created romeo:i;
                      foaf:primaryTopic romeo:i.
                   romeo:i :hasPrivateKeyFor :pubKey . } .

#(P10)
:client :hasPrivateKeyFor :pubKey .

#(P11)
# note: cannot use named graphs due to bug
# http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-cwm-talk/2009AprJun/0000.html
{ ( [ is :claims of :client ]
     [ is log:semantics of <http://www.w3.org/2000/10/swap/test/owl/new_owl_rules.n3 
 > ]
     {:client :hasPrivateKeyFor :pubKey.
      :hasPrivateKeyFor a owl:InverseFunctionalProperty.  }
   ) log:conjunction
                [ log:conclusion ?F ] . }
   => { :client :mustAgree ?F } .
-----------


The above seems to result in the :client agreeing that :client  
owl:sameAs romeo:i

you can check it by running

  cwm test.n3  --think
