This paper introduces the notion of quantifiable trust for electronic commerce. It describes metrics and models for the measurement of trust variables and fuzzy verification of transactions. Trust metrics help preserve system availability by determining risk on transactions. Fur-thermore, when several entities are involved in elec-tronic transactions, previously know techniques are ap-plied for trust propagation. Malicious transacting enti-ties may try to illegitimately gain access to private trust information. Suitable protocols are developed to mini-mize breach of privacy and incorporate a non-repudiable context using cryptographic techniques.
