Multi-Level Trust in E-Government Certification Practice

Arbia Riahi, Amel Meddeb, Manel Abdelkader

Abstract

Trust management has been addressed recently to provide networked systems with the appropriate mechanisms to perform any conformance checking with respect to a security policy in e-business and e-government. Trust management is an important issue for the deployment and success of e-government. We show in this paper the need to introduce the paradigm of multi-level trust in e-government systems, and propose a solution that provides X.509 standards with the modifications to allow multi-level trust certificate management, publication, and efficient use.
