Raised by: Reto Bachmann-Gmür
On product: use cases

A revolutionary network in an oppressive state wants to share some of their information only with people thy have reasons to consider trustworthy. They identities are not tied to persons identifiable to the state, also theirs security system must not rely on Certificate Authorities as a government owned Telecom company owns a root certificate.

Alice a well trusted member of the network is incarcerated together with Bob and finds him to be trustworthy. Alice shall be able to include Bob in the network, i.e. make it possible to other existing members to identify Bob as a person trusted by Alice.
