Having Bruce Scneier's discussion in _Secrets and Lies_ of the pervasive
problems inherent in key-management and certificates, I am curious about
your views on how exchanging keys _securely_ might work.

I hope "securely" doesn't signify anything as proximately meaningless as
having them frobbed by cryptographic signatures.
