Hi all,

The Security Vocabulary is one of those foundational pieces of the
PaySwarm and Web Keys work. It defines a number of vocabulary terms that
are used in Linked Data formats (such as JSON-LD) to express information
about encryption and decryption parameters as well as digital signature
details. We had a discussion on March 6th, 2012 about finalizing the
vocabulary spec for the planned PaySwarm commercial launch later this
year. I took some time over the weekend to update the spec to the set of
preliminary decisions that were made on that telecon:


The updated and time-stamped spec can be found here:


The JSON-LD context for the vocabulary can be found here:


I had requested the following PURL domain a number of months ago:


Unfortunately, the site admin has yet to approve the URL. I've tried
contacting them multiple times and have received no response. We've
applied for and have been approved for plenty of other domains through
purl.org, so I don't know why this one has become an issue.

In any case, I think the Security vocabulary is now stable and can be
used by other developers for their projects.
