This proof is not available for WolframAlpha and IPFS data sources. Currently, Oraclize only supports the TLSNotary proof, but in the future, they may support some other ways to authenticate. Currently, the TLSNotary proof needs to be validated manually, but Oraclize is already working on on-chain proof verification; that is, your smart contract code can verify the TLSNotary proof ...
