Paper Abstract

Fast, efficient distributed computing enables much more capable sensing systems for defense and commercial applications. However, distributed systems face distributed threats. These threats can be countered with a distributed trustworthiness architecture that measures and enforces trust across a network. Currently, there are no designs for distributed trust architectures suitable for complex systems. We present such an architecture, which measures nodes' trustworthiness before they join the network and while they are operational. In order to facilitate the computation and enforcement of trust, a distributed sensing network has to integrate a new type of component. We define the trust agents in terms of capabilities that support trustworthiness measurements.
