Putting there here to remind me to use the glossary directive… (these are not real definitions yet, just placeholders)


A unique cryptographic identity. One person may have multiple identities. One identity may have one or several Petnames and Beacons


A short name used to refer to a Identity. Petnames are always contextual: @Alice referring to @Bob has the status of “The person that @Alice knows as @Bob.” A petname can be declared by the identity being referred to as a “canonical” petname, but since they are potentially nonunique they should always be dereferenced against the Identity making the reference.
