You don't seem to be entirely talking about key management, given that you talk about mailpile and parley. Parley seems to be simply talking about *key storage* for example, which is a different kettle of fish. However, on the topic of key management itself, my own proposal was described here: http://www.metzdowd.com/pipermail/cryptography/2013-August/016870.html In summary, I proposed a way you can map IDs to keys through pure long term observation/widely witnessed events. The idea is not original given that to some extent things like Certificate Transparency already do this in other domains. Perry -- Perry E.
