KeyInfo Use Cases

Describe XrdOne/KeyInfoUseCase here.

This page collects the use case for different Keys.

Keys are categorized in three varieties.

(1) Subject Key (2) Signatory Key (3) Key in the Link

(1) Subject Key

  1. Expressing Subject's Public Key when Subject signs document somewhere.

Receiver of the signed document can verify the signature by this Key.

(2) Signatory Key

  1. Signing XRD to establish the authoritativeness of this XRD.

  1. In this use case, another XRD is linked from the original XRD. By specifying the public key of the intended signatory of the linked XRD, if the destination XRD was replaced by something else, one can find it out.

  2. XRI Resolution (Please fill in -> John?)
