    KeyNote is a trust-management system, designed on the same principles
    as PolicyMaker, but simpler and better-defined. This is the first
    public release, and although the code has been tested, it is by no
    means guaranteed bug-free (but then, what is). That said, you can get
    a copy from
    - -Angelos
    PS. From the README file:
    There should be a real README file here, but in the meantime read
    draft-angelos-spki-keynote-01.txt for the spec of KeyNote.
    There's much to be done yet to improve the user interface(s). Signature      
    verification is (deliberately) missing from this release, but the next one
    will have it. The hooks are obvious in the code (search for XXX in
    The makefile creates the libkeynote.a library which can be linked with other
    applications. The program keynote-verify can be used to verify a request,
    given a set of assertions and an environment. There will be a man page
    in the next release both for the library and the program, along with some
    sort of graphical UI to make assertion generation (including signing) easier.
    For any questions, comments, bug reports, praise, or anything else you have
    in mind, contact me at angelosat_private
