Using the Semantic Web to Generate Trust Indicators

Abstract

This article discusses how Semantic Web technology such as RDF and SPARQL can define and compute trust indicators related to Trust Service Providers (TSPs) using independent public domain information. Such Trust Indicators can complement the purely cryptographic trust evaluations that are common today.
