Easy frame of Reference: 2 pieces of Government Issue ID with Picture.
This includes all levels of Government; State & Federal. Most U.S.
Citizens do not have a Passport but 96% have either a Driver's License
or State ID Card. They may also have an Employer ID with photo but how
do You tell. You don't know and this is currently a fiercely debated
Topic on the CAcert-Policy List.
My Opinion, You are /only/ Signing an OpenPGP Key so accept whatever You
feel comfortable with. There is No Globally issued/accepted ID and I
pray there never is. If You are that paranoid, A-S-K for whatever You
feel comfortable with and if You are denied feel comfortable with
walking away without exchanging Sigs.
B4 You Ask; what do I require? Well, a 'Picture ID' I am comfortable
with. I also do more than exchange business cards, slips of paper, etc.
I require dialogs. Talk to Me. Who do We know in common?, How much do
You know? I Ping Your Email address, if at a BoF Party, Who else is
there that I know and You know? There is no R-U-S-H.
Here's a 'Deal Breaker!' - You are 'In a Hurry' cause I _never_ Sign
immediately unless it is a special occasion. If You are asking for a
CAcert Assurance or a GSWoT Sig then I've got readily available Sources
of authentication. If You're just a "Sig Fisher" then I've got all the
time in the World to feel comfortable.
Even if You Sign My Key then I am *not* obligated to Sign Yours. It is
My Signature to give/issue. I love Robert J. Hansen's analogy; Would I
loan You My car keys? Chances are, if I wouldn't trust You with My
financial liability, I won't Sign Your key.

P.S. This is just ME. Others May be 'round heeled' with their Sigs.
