Key Format

The public key is the primary key (the ID) of a key.  Other fields are:

Signatures

Keys may be signed, we treat key signatures as separate entities.  A signature consists of
  • The pubkey of the signed key
  • The pubkey of the signer
  • The "digest", the cryptographic checksum that proves that the signer has signed the key
This feature will be implemented when Dan Bernstein integrates signatures into NaCl; maybe a bit earlier, since the code for these signatures is already tested.
