+An ego is the persona that controls a namespace.
+It is identical to a public\-private ECC key pair.
+.PP
gnunet\-identity can be used to list all of the egos that were created
locally, to create new egos, and to delete existing egos (the
namespace will continue to exist, but it will be impossible to add
additional data to it).

Creating a new ego requires using the \-C option together with an
-identifier (name) that is to be used for the new ego. This identifier
-is only used locally for this peer and not shared with other peers.
