As it stands there is no way for me to evaluate an authentic or  
inauthentic experience. I don't know what authentic looks like. I  
have no trust anchor.

This email message sent to me was enough of a trust anchor to use  
802.1x. Specifically as "the instructions" are the same as IETF-70 and  
previous meetings.

Sure, the mail was not signed, but I also asked a friend at the  
meeting "what he used". And as we both had the same instructions, we  
trusted that. If we wanted to, we could have asked someone actually  
running the network, but we did not feel we had to.
