Sigining RDF documents

Created: 2013/06/23 10:47:42+0000

About a month ago I decided to sign my RDF documents. I found the Web of Trust ontology to do this and it appeared to provide what I needed. I based by work on the examples they provided and everything seemed fine until I noticed that the examples were not fully supported by the specification.

I was signing my documents using a detached signature that I would link to from the documents. The endorser element used in the example was missing from the schema. I looked through the schema and was unable to find how to indicate which key should be used to verify a signature. The difference between the examples and the schema makes me think that it is unfinished and forgotten. In the end I just followed the example.
