Executive Summary

Trust and reputation are the pillars of many social phenomena that shape the Internet socio-economic scene. The few existing taxonomies provide only initial insights into the ways trust benefits can be felt, but they are neither complete nor elaborated in a systemic manner. In this paper, the authors propose a multidimensional framework for designing and assessing the completeness and consistency of reputation mechanisms. Their framework is based on systemic principles; it identifies reputation system components, the factors that influence the system-design, defines the interrelations between the former and the dependencies on the later.
