Credential Networks: a General Model for Distributed Trust and Authenticity Management

  title={Credential Networks: a General Model for Distributed Trust and Authenticity Management},
  author={Jacek Jonczy and Rolf Haenni},
In large open networks, handling trust and authenticity adequately is an important prerequisite for security. In a distributed approach, all network users are allowed to issue various types of credentials, e.g. certificates, recommendations, revocations, ratings, etc. This paper proposes such a distributed approach, in which the evaluation of trust and authenticity is based on so-called credential networks. The corresponding formal model includes many existing trust models as special cases. 1
