We propose computational, declarative definitions of the concepts of weak and strong trust
relations between interacting agents, and trust domains of trust-related agents in distributed
systems. Our definitions yield computational complexity results for deciding potential and
actual trust relationships and membership in trust domains. We instantiate our trust concepts
in four major applications of trust, namely: Trusted Third Parties (TTPs), the Web of Trust,
Public-Key Infrastructures...[Show more]
