Wheee, CAKE now properly generates and parses AssertionMessages. I'm quite pleased. :-) This is a major step in allowing protocol implementations to exchange information about what transports and sub-protocols are supported, as well as providing a format for sending verifiable public keys to others.
Now I have to sit down and think through a few kinds of assertions that will need to be made, how they can be invalidated by later assertions and so on. Most of these assertions will be made and acted on at a level below what most users would see, but some of them, such as contract signings and such, will be made at a higher level.
