The project for the drivers is open source as I understand

Jan just told me that one can get the Subject Alternative Name set on it for the X509 certificate that comes with the private key. This would give a whole new layer of security to a WebID, and I am sure something a lot of people will be interested in playing with.

Hopefully Jan will join the mailing list here and the conversation. But I did not want to presume of it. You can contact him via
