I'm probably just worrying again

Thank you Snorre, Wayne, and David for your replies. Along the way I also
discovered “Formal Modelling and Application of Graph Transformations in
the Resource Description Framework” by Benjamin Braatz due to Ryan
Wisenesky which is different but may share some elements of what Wayne
shared? This treatment is quite complete, but I must admit I frequently
find myself distracted. (recently I discovered bls_381 for FPGAs —good
stuff). Hence, a more concrete review is in store for me. The book, “Real
World Cryptography” by David Wong has section 7.3.3. for the Elliptic Curve
Digital Signature Algorithm. I figure that once I understand the math and
how it relates to group theory  ( which may or may not be able to be
generalized for all signature types?) and how this relates to the
definition of a category I can then generalize to a signature of a payload
and then consider Braatz’s work for consideration of RDF and json schema…
