I haven't checked but I was thinking that the trust is probably based on
signature and not author but now I'm not sure.
an additional thought occurs to me though: considering that you're talking
about decoupling the person who made the assertion from the person who signed
it, might you also want to decouple the date the assertion was made from the
date it was signed? i.e.
[id, name, value,
yeah, that seems reasonable too.. it does accurately reflect what's going
on at least. presumably signing-date will be updated by db rebuild when
you're re-signing the certs.
I know that looks longer, but by eliminating the extra signatures from date
and author certs (and storing dates and authors non-base64-encoded) it would
be both less database space and much more efficient for some things. I can
that's what I was thinking too.
