A quick FYI. We now have proxy/wrapper Linked Data URIs in SANs re. 
x.509 certificates produced by our HTML based certificate generator [1]. 
Thus, if you follow the directions from my earlier post [2], you now 
have an option (via the Wizard UI) for using proxy/wrapper URIs as WebID 
watermarks in x.509 certificates.

The proxy/wrapper URIs we generate basically work with existing WebID 
clients (from others) without modification. We've used proxy/wrapper 
URIs as a layer of abstraction that shields others from the complexity 
of implementing data access drivers for Web 2.0 APIs.


1. http://id.myopenlink.net/certgen -- first cut (beautification to 
come) HTML based certificate generator which as has native Windows and 
iOS5 counterparts nearing completion

2. http://goo.gl/AcYWQ -- original post about leveraging Facebook as a 
WebID compliant IdP (follow the steps here, but choose *proxy URI* option )

3. http://id.myopenlink.net/ods/webid_demo.html -- simple WebID 
verification service

-- proxy/wrapper Linked Data URI example (note the footer section re. 
supported formats which you can negotiate via HTTP or discover via 
"Link:" response headers or <link/> entries in <head/> in HTML)

5. http://goo.gl/krOAV -- alternative HTML view (useful for deeper 
follow-your-nose navigation)

-- shows how we've extended the WOT ontology in our own data space 
(follow-your-nose to see unobtrusive nature of this approach) .
