This document introduces a URI scheme for Linked Identitites to be used in URI Attributes in OpenPGP keys compatible to [RFC4880] and [URIATTR]. A Linked Identity then links the key to a resource on the internet in a mutual and verifiable way. The assumed authorization required to publish the resource forms a limited basis of trust for the key.
