Trust Strategies for the Semantic Web

O'Hara, Kieron, Alani, Harith, Kalfoglou, Yannis and Shadbolt, Nigel (2004) Trust Strategies for the Semantic Web At Workshop on Trust, Security, and Reputation on the Semantic Web, 3rd International (ISWC'04), Japan. 07 - 11 Nov 2004.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Everyone agrees on the importance of enabling trust on the SemanticWeb to ensure more efficient agent interaction. Current research on trust seems to focus on developing computational models, semantic representations, inference techniques, etc. However, little attention has been given to the plausible trust strategies or tactics that an agent can follow when interacting with other agents on the Semantic Web. In this paper we identify five most common strategies of trust and discuss their envisaged costs and benefits. The aim is to provide some guidelines to help system developers appreciate the risks and gains involved with each trust strategy.
