Open water information systems such as the South Esk Hydrological Sensor Web allow easy access to, and sharing of, hydrological information. Because important decisions may be based on the shared informations, it is necessary to provide a trust management mechanism that allows users to evaluate the trustworthiness of such information. Trust can be defined as a belief a party has that the other party will fulfil its commitments.
