September 12, 2017: An Historic Day for Osmio

On September 12, 2017, keyholders and authenticity entrepreneurs gathered in Geneva, Switzerland for the key generation and signing ceremony for the City of Osmio, a citizen-driven duly constituted public authority and certification authority.

It represents an historic part of the deployment of the Quiet Enjoyment Infrastructure, which is a step toward bringing real authenticity, privacy, and security to the internet.

Wes Kussmaul, the creator of the Quiet Enjoyment Infrastructure and the founder of Delphi, leads the charge for internet authenticity through authorship, thought leadership, and the creation of The Authenticity Institute.
