Hi Michal

I'm wondering how can I express a trust hierarchy other than a chain using

Until #3283 <https://redmine.named-data.net/issues/3283>, this implies key
A will have two certificates in two Data packets.

Now, I use A to sign my data packet, so its key locator will point to A.
The KeyLocator will point to one of the two certificates.

However, when I download A's certificate, will it include key locators to
> both B and C?

> If no, what should I do if the consumer trusts only B, but not C?
You may work on https://redmine.named-data.net/issues/3283 , or use "Watch"
button to get progress updates.

Yours, Junxiao
