Re: Certificates/Anonymity/Policy/True Names
Bill Stewart asks what follows from "prohibit". In the model I am, um,
hypothesizing, CAs that play by the rules are entitled to certain safe
harbors shielding them from potential liability (e.g. can't be sued if
their certificate was used in a transaction that went bad through no
fault of theirs). No other behaviour or act is banned, but other,
private, alternatives may suffer a coompetitive disadvantage since they
would lack the certainty that they could not be sued.
