The evaluation of the trustworthiness of complex systems is a challenge in current IT research. We contribute to this field by providing a novel model for the evaluation of propositional logic terms under uncertainty that is compliant with the standard probabilistic approach and subjective logic. Furthermore, we present a use case to demonstrate how this approach can be applied to the evaluation of the trustworthiness of a system based on the knowledge about its components and subsystems.
