As I understand the method of uising DHTs URLs for the keys is compatible with  WebID, and even
WebID-TLS. Actually I have looked at the different ways it can be made compatible with LDP

It would of course make implementations easier if the crypto ontologies were agreed on in a wider

Still with the Blockchain workshop coming up we may soon have a lot more cryptographers on board.
