Trust between parties in the semantic web

These results consist of a Framework and OWL ontology to address trust between parties in the Semantic Web. As the World Wide Web adopts a service oriented architecture for service, data and knowledge access it becomes more common and crucial to users’ peer to peer services to be able to know which parties they can trust to provide the service, data or knowledge that they require.

The Semantic Web allows quality of service and properties of the required service to be defined for a role in a user’s business process model - so a user can state what they want, when by, for how much money etc... However, before entering into any contract with a supplier, the user wishes to know if the supplier will meet their contractual obligations. The framework defined can be used to access trusted third parties who can provide recommendations about potential providers based on fourth party recommendations or the potential provider’s reputation based on experience - answering the question: was this provider reliable before in providing to others, what I want now?

The Trust ontology allows such questions to be stated during peer to peer communication for different aspects of business processes, and the answers provided to be understood within the wider context of contract establishment.
