So you mean that entity denoted by a WebID would be in a :hasPublicKey 
relation? If so, then at this point I would presume:
<http://www.w3.org/ns/auth/cert#key> owl:equivalentProperty :hasPublicKey.

Then when you are offline you can add or remove that relation en route 
to protecting against compromised computer which holds your cert. and 
private key re. WebID+TLS protocol based identity verification. 
Basically, you can delete the existing association(s) and then make new 
ones based on your new WebID, Private Key, and Public Key combo.
