Well, the details are important ;) If someone is particularly fond of arguing over certificate formats, ZeroMQ is trying to design one. I'm also trying to design one as well! It would be nice to consolidate efforts on an X.509 replacement, even if it's a limited capacity one. Here's the original email to the 0MQ list: http://lists.zeromq.org/pipermail/zeromq-dev/2013-October/022975.html Here's my response: http://lists.zeromq.org/pipermail/zeromq-dev/2013-October/023009.html -- Tony Arcieri
