With the rise of the internet and its applications, it has became more and more
common for unfamiliar parties to interact with each other. In order to help and
encourage such interactions trust management systems were introduced. Those systems
try to alleviate mistrust by gathering and processing statistical information
about previous events.
This thesis describes TrustPack, a trust management framework that provides
trust management as a service, i.e., TrustPack is separated from any specific
application usage. TrustPack is unique in that it does not provide a central
service. Instead, it is run by many autonomous services. This design enables it to
alleviate privacy concerns, as well as potentially provide better personalization and
scalability when compared with current centralized solutions.
