I have rewritten the foafssl.org server with the bblfish branch of clerezza [1].
Some improvements over the previous versions:

- user interface is a lot nicer (it's the default clerezza look)
- the user can currently stop on his profile page on foafssl.org where he can
  + see his identity
  + browser his social network (click on the photo)
  + logout and login with a different certificate (works best on Firefox, and IE - I think, but have not tested it yet (please let me know)
  + public key that is used for signing is published in rdf at https://foafssl.org/srv/idp in RDF
    The certificate used is the one used by the TLS endpoint

Please change the verification of your scripts if they are using verification to work with the new key.

The server is running on the same machine as bblfish.net . I will try using the same server and see if I can get Server Name Indication working (Java 7 supports it apparently) so that the service can also function on bblfish.net. (This is saving me 60-70 euros a month, as I can now stop a cloud service I was paying for)

  Please let me know of improvements you would like to see. 

The key improvement here is to give the user the ability to log out, so that he can login to different services with different certificates. Anyone can run their own version by using the clerezza code on github.
