A mechanism for discovery and verification of trust scheme memberships
the LIGHTest Reference Architecture
Electronic transactions are an integral component of private and business life. For this purpose, a certification of trustworthy electronic identities supported from authorities is often required. Within the EU-funded LIGHTest project, a global trust infrastructure based on DNS is built, where arbitrary authorities can publish their trust information. A high level description of the LIGHTest reference architecture is presented. Then, the Trust Scheme Publication Authority, which enables discovery and verification of trust scheme memberships is introduced.
