The StartSSL™ Web-of-Trust (WoT) is an attempt by StartCom to create a community network of StartSSL™ appointed notaries and members, where the members with notary status perform the verification of its subscribers. This is a decentralized infrastructure for the validation of the subscriber's identity in person by another member of the community network.
Any person can participate in this web-of-trust and by qualifying to the guidelines act as appointed StartSSL™ notary. The added value of multiple assurances by the verifying notaries increases the confidence in your personal certificates. Join the StartSSL™ Web-of-Trust
