Trust Position - GOLD

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Panos Periorellis



The purpose of this report is to formulate a position on trust and trust-related issues in GOLD. GOLD (Grid-based Information Models to Support the Rapid Innovation of New High Value-Added Chemicals) is concerned with the dynamic formation and management of virtual organisations in order to exploit market opportunities. The project aims to deliver the enabling technology to support the creation, operation and successful termination of such virtual organisations. A set of middleware technologies are designed and being implemented to address issues such as trust, security, contract management and monitoring, information management, etc. for virtual collaboration between companies. Trust is an important and essential attribute in the formation and operation of VO’s composed on organisational entities. In this report we explore how trust can emerge to support such a complex, dynamic network through a dependable architectural framework.
