With our ever-increasing reliance on a digital economy, most business and government activities now depend on networked information systems for their basic operation. Clearly, we're seeing a renewed urgency to get a better handle on capturing and reasoning about trust in computing systems and information services. Even Microsoft has adopted the term trustworthy computing as a company initiative in both its internal software development and its commercial offerings.
