A SAID is a self-addressing identifier but NOT a self-certifying identifier. An AID is Self-Certifying and may be also self-addressing. SAIDs are essentially content addressable identifiers whereas SCIDs have provable control. A self-certifiable self-addressing identifier has both provable control and is content-addressable. The most common form of AID is both self-certifying and self-addressing but some forms of AID are merely self-certifying.
