This workplan correspond to a Summer Semester Research
program where students choose a topic and they should investigate on
it. It is
of 7 milestones where they have to learn about the state of the art in
the topic selected achieving some goals and they have to present a final
work at the end.
When a transaction
between two entities needs to be done, both entities will need some information
While current approaches relies on the client/server approach where one
of the two entities is registered on the other, Automated Trust Negotiation
denotes the process where both parties ask and disclose information whenever
it is needed according to their own policies.
The chosen topic consists on the management of credentials
in the current prototype in Automated Trust Negotiation. Currently, credentials contain only one property and it would be interesting if the credentials could contain more than one. The requirement here is that each property must be disclosable alone and still be signed. For this purpose, the text included in the credential is a signed statement too.
