Henry,

How about evolving:
b. extracts the URI from the Subject Alternative Name field of the 
certificate, which is known as Bobís WebID: a global identifier that 
refers to Bob via a document that describes him

To:
b. de-references the URI from the Subject Alternative Name field of the 
certificate, which serves as Bobís WebID: a global identifier that 
resolves to structured profile document that describes him
