  • trust (2): The relationship between trusted and trustee is a negotiated one based on assumptions made about the information available and the perceived trustworthiness of that information. Those making the trust assertions must be armed with sufficient and appropriate provenancial and contextual data for their particular community. The required level of trust necessary to form acceptable trust assertions will depend on the community in which these actions are taking place and the socio-cultural protocols and policies, including laws and regulations, that direct the community. Protocols and policies also highlight both the rights and responsibilities wrapped into establishing trust. (†428)
