In other words, a entity who is capable of "speaking" in the cyberspace by signing messages. The public key is 1:1 with the private key and is both a way of verifying a signature and a name for the private key. The hash of the public key is a name for the public key. So, we use either the public key or its hash as the principal -- precisely, as a name for the private key. > ><reval> & <reval>, <crl> <delta-crl> <sequence> : > > > >The s-expression <reval> is defined two times : one in page 32 > >(<reval>:: "(" "reval" <version> <subj-hash> <valid-basic> ")";) and > >other in 33 (<reval>:: "(" "reval" <version> <subj-hash> <one-valid> > >")"; ). > > There are two kinds of reval -- one-time and persistent.
