A Swiss base is the unguessable number which hashes to the Swiss number of some object. It constitutes the authority to claim to be a particular object (as seen by other vats).

That is, the IdentityMgr requires the Swiss base in order to make a registration, so that merely knowing the Swiss number of an object in the local vat is not sufficient to claim to be that object.
