The idea of a certificate authoritiy has come up again. 

I kinda like the idea. It could be used for authenticatin, digital signatures, 
https ( for the servers ).

There are a few issues to be worked out, though. 

1) Setting up a CA. ( I like OpenCA ) 
2) Figuring out a reliable way to identify people independant of the CA. 

Anything else?
