Q&A

What is BitofTrust Architecture?

The BoT architecture rests on 3 layers (c.f. Picture above and below):

  • BoT: Bits of Trust are relationships between 2 entities, the Issuer of the BoT and its Recipient (Issuers and Recipients can be people, organizations, services, objects, etc.). With people, this relationship is often called endorsement. In other terms, BoTs are the data layer.
  • NoT: Networks of Trust are dynamic aggregate of BoTs. They are obtained by mining BoTs to establish network representations of selected entities in different contexts (personal, professional, social, cultural, territorial, etc.). In other terms, it is the (re)presentation layer, i.e. a multidimensional representation where entities (person, organisations, etc. ) are the nodes and the trust relationships the vertices linking the nodes. There is no limit to the numbers of NoTs, their size and their inter-relationships.
  • WoT: Webs of Trust services are composed of the range of services based on the possible inferences made out of NoTs analysis (employment, education, healthcare, etc.). In other terms it is the service layer.
