Trust Networks on the Semantic Web

Trust Networks on the Semantic Web
The so-called "Web of Trust" is one of the ultimate goals of the Semantic Web. Research on the topic of trust in this domain has focused largely on digital signatures, certificates, and authentication. At the same time, there is a wealth of research into trust and social networks in the physical world. In this paper, we describe an approach for integrating the two to build a web of trust in a more social respect. This paper describes the applicability of social network analysis to the semantic web, particularly discussing the multi-dimensional networks that evolve from ontological trust specifications. As a demonstration of algorithms used to infer trust relationships, we present several tools that allow users to take advantage of trust metrics that use the network.
