Create a FOAF file

From Konfidi

Jump to: navigation, search

Create an RDF file with FOAF, WOT, and trust information, like the sample below. Here is a sample in which Dave trusts Jason and Jeremy both 0.95 on the topic of internet-communication. Even if you aren't familiar with RDF, you can use this file as a base; just change the names, email addresses, fingerprints, and rating numbers.

Then sign it with GPG and submit it to a foafserver so the trust data can be used in the Konfidi system. If you're using gpg from the commandline, you can sign it with: gpg --detach-sign --armor foaf.rdf

All trusters and trusted people must have a PGP key and its fingerprint must be specified. Topics can be any URI, but we suggest using http://www.konfidi.org/ns/topics/0.0#internet-communication until a set of common topics is defined. (Currently the trustserver ignores everything up to the '#' in the topic URI)
