Hang on a minute, so what they're really saying is that the mechanism for distributing peoples public keys and the trust around those keys so signatures could be verified. So if people aren't in the chain of trust then it doesn't work, that implies not a problem with the technology but the environment where it's being implemented. That affects our trust of the issuers outside the web and consumers outside the web of passports issued inside the web.

That implies it's sociopolitical not technological.


Submission Blackberry ban for the French Cabinet->

Members of some French government departments had still been using the devices in secret despite an earlier ban.
