CAcert.org is a community-driven certificate authority that issues free public key certificates to the public (unlike other certificate authorities which are commercial and sell certificates). CAcert has nearly 150,000 verified users and has issued over 480,000 certificates as of July 2009[update].
These certificates can be used to sign and encrypt email, authenticate and authorize users connecting to websites and secure data transmission over the Internet. Any application that supports the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) can make use of certificates signed by CAcert, as can any application that uses X.509 certificates, e.g. for encryption or code signing and document signatures.
I can assign 35 trust points. Your name can be embedded into your certificates after 50 points, and you can become a notary after 100 points.
To notarize you I can meet in New York City in Manhattan. The upper Westside (near the Museum of Natural History) any other location is on a case by case basis
At least two notaries will try to meet at least once a month.
Two notaries will be at the
Starbucks on Broadway & 81st St. every first Friday of the month
from around 6:00PM to 6:30PM.
The Cacert Web of Trust Rules specify at least ONE official photo ID
For the photo ID, I will accept a Driver License / Non driver ID card or a Passport.
Everything else is on a case by case basis.
. Please email me the day before the meeting since I will only show up if someone is attending!!!
