  • trust (p. 26): Traditionally, trust in documents has been based on trust in those who hold them in custody. The grounds for it are: reputation, which results from an evaluation of the custodians’ past actions and conduct; performance, which is the relationship between the custodian’s present actions and the conduct required to fulfil his or her current responsibilities; competence, which consists of having the knowledge, skills, talents, and traits required to be able to perform a task to any given standard; and confidence, which is an assurance of expectation of action and conduct.

  • trust relationship (p. 28): The model of cloud computing is reminiscent of the mainframe environment of the 1960s, except that in this case we are not putting our trust in the proprietary and highly controlled environment of the company mainframe, but in global service providers, whose agendas and priorities as they build out their infrastructures are very different from our own. The trust relationship demands careful analysis and consideration and it is important to highlight specific challenges to entrusting data, records and archives to the cloud. Key issues of ownership, jurisdiction, and privacy have yet to be resolved. Longer term concerns around responsibility for maintenance, access, and preservation, all of which correspond to issues of trust, are looming on the horizon. (†2738)
