A guide to operating in a trust ecosystem.


A trust ecosystem enables emerging data-centric protection features and capabilities – in particular Smart Data (see The Open Group White Paper W140) to operate to their optimum potential. The Jericho Forum Commandments (see The Open Group White Paper W124, May 2007) Commandment #8 states that in any environment, secure data is data that remains protected to the required level when outside an entity owner's direct locus of control, and Commandment #9 states that access to data should be controlled by security attributes of the data itself; i.e., data-centric security. In today's Cloud Computing and other globally distributed environments, we can no longer know where our data might be located or in whose hands it may rest. Operating in a trust ecosystem maintains optimum protection over the data, thereby maintaining its business value as usable as intended but protected from misuse.
