"Trust". Most people understand the concept of “trust”, but most people are also at somewhat of a loss for words when asked to define that concept, especially in terms of on-line transactions and digital identities. So, just what is “trust”? Trust is binary – either you trust someone or something or you don’t.
There’s no partial trust. But, secondly, trust is not absolute – there are parameters, filters, boundaries to that trust: you trust “an entity” for “a task”. Trust on-line can be calculated by doing a risk assessment (amount of loss times probability of loss) and seeing if the product of that assessment is lower than your pre-set “trust threshold”. Calculating the probability of loss involves factoring in experience or reputation. So, when you get to the bottom of it, trust is inextricably tied up with reputation. Distributing trust around the internet in a secure, privacy-enhancing yet just-in-time way is the province of what are called “trust frameworks,” something that’s drawing a lot of attention around the world and something which will be at the heart of identity transactions for the foreseeable future. In this track, we’ll explore all of these aspects of trust with the people who are creating, implementing, using and maintaining them.
