Abstract

Year 2012 completes a decade since the iTrust research network was established in Europe. The international research community associated with iTrust is the predecessor of the IFIP Working Group 11.11 on Trust Management, the organization largely behind events such as the IFIPTM conference series. The completion of a decade since the establishment of iTrust also marks the first time that an international conference on Trust Management takes place in India, and indeed the first time that such a conference takes place outside of the aging “old world” economies of Europe, North America and Japan. This combination offers an excellent opportunity for a review of how we got here: the evolution of the international research community on trust management from 2002 to 2012. This review also offers a pre-text for surveying a selection of research results, research papers and innovative solution demonstrators that have been produce by the trust management community in the last decade.

This paper is the printed version of an invited keynote in IFIPTM 2012 conference that took place in Surat, India.
