IFIP TM on Trust Management

Trust is an essential glue for any society, whether formed by human or artificial agents, whether in a real-life or an online setting. This trust needs to be established, reinforced or abolished to reflect changes in the society and its participants. The mechanisms for such trust management may be psychological or sociological in the case of humans, algorithmic or probabilistic, e.g., in the case of artificial agents. Services for brokering, certification, recommendation, legal enforcement, identity and reputation management may also help the agent in this management task, and they are all the more useful given the increasing scale and virtual nature of societies. Indeed, applications such as online social networks, collaborative systems or e-commerce need to contend with high transaction volume, anonymity, and malicious behavior. Solutions to these challenges need to be validated using realistic models and benchmarks.
