More on how digital signatures and the Social Web WG work intersect:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-socialweb/2014Nov/0164.html

At some point, I'd imagine that digitally signed credentials would
become important for the Social Web WG work. Meaning, it would be nice
if when you sent a message to someone, they could verify that it was
actually you who sent it (as in a doctor sending a patient medical
advice via a private social network along with a link to their digitally
signed medical license - which is an emerging need in telemedicine).

I've moved that thread off of this mailing list because it has delved
into stuff that's specific to the Social Web WG, but thought I'd link
this group to the discussion if folks would like to follow along in that
group.
