Subject pgp trust for https?
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2005 11:17:52 GMT
We have grown accustomed to two separate trust mechanisms
on the 'net; server certs signed by some authority, or the PGP
web of trust.

I would like to be able to use PGP trust over the web.  That would
mean (something like) installing a certificate on the server, and
signing it with my PGP key.  My browser, having access to and
trust in, my public key, will then trust the server.  No need for
any dealings with verispam.

Is there any technical reason this shouldn't happen?
