Title Trust Management in the Semantic Grid
Abstract The analysis of trust and it management in virtual organisations has been active research area over the last few years. The European project TrustCoM is looking to build a framework for using trust and contract management in the context of virtual organisations across businesses. It has developed a model of trust and an analysis of how trust management influences the establishment of contracts and SLAs, and the enforcement of the contracts during the execution of the VO. This framework offers the Semantic Grid a definition of trust, its relationship to reputation, risk and contracts, and a set of challenges and models for the use of trust in a VO management system. By adding ontologies from the semantic web for trust evaluation, contracts and policies, we can make these concepts more explicit and expressive, capturing in an extensible and tranferable fashion their attributes. Rules can be then used to enforce policies and provide feedback of execution onto the policies and trust evaluations.
