Verifying Identity Assertions in LID


When Johannes Ernst first proposed LID, I said it was more like business cards rather than real identity credentials because it lacked the ability to verify identity assertions that people made about themselves. The latest LID spec contains a method for third part verification of assertions (see Section 4.7). I think that this closes a major hole. I haven't reviewed the new spec in detail yet, but I wanted to mention this since it was my major gripe before.
