Good question since WOT  and these newer Key oriented ontologies
aren't aligned. In addition, WOT is conflating public key and x.509
certificate. The fingerprint I am talking about is a hash (md4, md5,
sha, sha256, sha512) of the entire x.509 Cert.
If you put a Certificate's fingerprint in a data space (this could be a
tweet even) you can still perform a match with the X.509 cert from a
successful SSL/TLS handshake.
Since we are preoccupied with this feature, we'll take on the task of
making a tweak to existing ontologies (if possible). Then we'll just
share what we have and leave it up to everyone else to decide what they
do with it :)
