The importance of naming in information systems is explained with
reference to a typical use case. Existing Internet naming systems
attempt to strike a balance between usability and machine
readability. An alternative approach in which separate classes of
identifiers are introduced for human and machine interaction is
described. Human Interaction Identifiers are interpreted in the
context in which they are used and are thus more compact and offer a
superior user experience. Strong Internet Names are a form of
Machine Interaction Identifier that are backwards compatible with
existing Internet names that include a DNS address and are
cryptographically bound to a security policy governing
interpretation. The application of these approaches in the
Mathematical Mesh is described.
