Do you mean to identify yourself, and/or you insist on that before
you'll sign someone else's key?

But to be brutal, a birth certificate proves nothing, any thief could
have stolen one.  And which of us could pick a good faked driver's
license or passport from a real one?  Or would know whether someone's
fraudulently obtained real ones?
