Thanks :-) .... these helped me a lot in understanding :-)
I've also read the thread and nearly the same question is asked there
againm but,.. just to be sure:
So if I sign someone with a tsign and level 1:
-He is a trusted introducer for me, meaning that UIDs he sign are
automatically valid for me. (using sign)
-If he tsigns someone,... with any level, that UID is vaild for me too
BUT can't introduce new UIDs or introducers for me.
If I sign someone with level 2:
He is a metaintroducer meaning that,...
-normal normal sign he makes to UIDs are autom. vaild for me too.
-If he tsigns someone that someone is introducer for me too
=>root_ca and president is valid to me
=>sub_CA is vaild too but nothing that sub_CA signs/tsigns is vaild for me
=>root_CA, president, sub_CA_A, sub_CA_B are vaild to me
=>bill is vaild too as root_CA makes sub_CA_A to an trusted introducer
for me (with the level 1 tsign)
=>sub_sub_CA_B_A itself is valid too for me
=>joe is NOT vaild for me, even sub_sub_CA_B_A got an level-1-tsign from
sub_CA_B which got an (!!) level-2-tsign from root_CA which would be ok
=> BUT I gave root_CA only a level-2-sign so third and higher level
introducers (like sub_sub_CA_B_A is one) do not count for me
=>mike is not vaild for me, too. even the levels for him would have been
ok,.. BUT president hasn't an tsign-x signature from the root
Everything correct so far?
What is the difference if I use FULLY or MARGINAL with tsigns?
