EU - LIGHTest - Lightweight Infrastructure for Global Heterogeneous Trust management in support of an open Ecosystem of Stakeholders and Trust schemes.

Project: Research project

Project Details


The objective of LIGHTest is to create a global cross-domain trust infrastructure that renders it transparent and easy for
verifiers to evaluate electronic transactions. By querying different trust authorities world-wide and combining trust aspects
related to identity, business, reputation etc. it will become possible to conduct domain-specific trust decisions.
This is achieved by reusing existing governance, organization, infrastructure, standards, software, community, and know-
how of the existing Domain Name System, combined with new innovative building blocks. This approach allows an efficient
global rollout of a solution that assists decision makers in their trust decisions. By integrating mobile identities into the
scheme, LIGHTest also enables domain-specific assessments on Levels of Assurance for these identities.
