Paper Abstract

In modern coalition operations, decision makers must be capable of obtaining and fusing data from diverse sources. The reliability of these sources can vary, and, in order to protect their interests, the data they provide can be obfuscated. The trustworthiness of fused data depends on both the reliability of these sources and their obfuscation strategy. Information consumers must determine how to evaluate trust in the presence of obfuscation, while information providers must determine the appropriate level of obfuscation in order to ensure both that they remain trusted, and do not reveal any private information. In this paper, through a coalition scenario, we discuss and formalise trust and obfuscation in these contexts and the complex relationships between them.
