Dear Sir/Mme,

I recently attended a AUT training in Amsterdam and there I learned I
have a problem with my CaCert account because the names I used to
register my account do not match to my official identity papers
because at the time I registered at CaCert I used my forename/second
initial/lastname instead of my complete birthnames and lastname.

Can you please give me directions on how to start procedures to get
my CaCert credentials corrected to match my identity?

Kind regards,
Peter van Hameren

Before: Arbitrator UlrichSchroeter (A). Respondent: CAcert Incorporated (R) Claimant: Peter van Hameren (C) Case: a20090619.2



Due to these facts I order the accounts name to be changed without the removal of any assurance or experience points. The claimant is requested to revoke currently valid certificates, however this is not an order and is left to the discretion of the claimant.

The certificates are not revoked mandatorily, because
 * the CPS only requires the name to be assured under Assurance Policy, which it was.
 * the Assurance Policy itself only requires that the Name, E-Mail and secondary distinguishing feature be known, which they are.
 * the current PracticeOnNames would suggest that the current account name is actually valid according to current policies and practices.

This ruling uses Arbitrations/a20090621.2 and Arbitrations/a20090618.4 as a precedent. Please see that ruling for rationale.
