For those interested in RDF and digital signature it might be of 
interest a small something we've come up with and submitted [1] as a 
short paper to the next www conference.
It is a description of the techique we use in our SW P2P project DBin 
[2], basically we make some derivations from from the properties of 
blank nodes and use these to apply digital signatures to individual 
"blank node closures" in RDF model.
..so many different groups of statements, coming from different sources, 
can stay in the same model and all be coherently and simply queried (by 
any existing tool, no need for support of extra constructs like named 
graphs, quadruples, quintuples etc.. )
.
The Java library implementing this is in good state, soon to be released 
and announced.
For details please refer to the paper.. it's short but cute. :-)
