Building Lasting Trust

As people begin using the Connect.Me beta, questions are starting to come in, "What are the different trust levels? What is a trust anchor? How can I become a trust anchor?"

The formal answers are in the Respect Trust Framework, the legal foundation upon which Connect.Me is based. It was originally announced at the European Identity Conference in May (where it won the Privacy Award). The full background is available in The Personal Network, the 22-page white paper released at the same time.

But for a much shorter set of answers, read the PDF below, called Building Lasting Trust: The Game Dynamics of the Respect Trust Framework. It's only 8 pages, and it explains everything including how Founding Trust Anchors are appointed. (Extra credit: if you want to become a Founding Trust Anchor, instructions are at the end.)

Note: we haven't turned on trust anchor vouching yet, so you won't find any Trust Anchor or Founding Trust Anchor ribbons on Connect.Me cards yet. Also, mobile phone number verification to reach the Verified level isn't enabled yet (except by doing it at Facebook and connecting your Facebook account). Stay tuned for both.

Lastly, if you are particularly interested in the subject, please join tomorrow's Yi-Tan telecon at 16:30UTC, hosted by Jerry Michalski and Pip Coburn. The topic is Trust Networks, and specifically the role of trust anchors in Connect.Me.
