The internet is now being used for commercial, social and educational interactions, which previously relied on direct face-to-face contact in order to establish trust relationships. Thus, there is a need to be able to establish and evaluate trust relationship relying only on electronic interactions over the Internet. A trust framework for Internet applications should corporate concepts such as experience, reputation and trusting propensity in order to specify and evaluate trust. SULTAN (Simple Universal Logic-oriented Trust Analysis Notation) is an abstract, logic-oriented notation designed to facilitate the specification and analysis of trust relationships. This seminar will provide a glimpse of SULTAN Trust Management, which not only includes facilities for trust specification, trust analysis, but also trust monitoring and risk management.
