Journal Contribution - Journal Article
The 20th anniversary conference of the Interdisciplinary Center for Law & ICT, was held in Leuven, Belgium, on November 14-15, 2011, under the title 'Trust in the information society - In search of Trust Generating Mechanisms for the Network Society'. The conference intended to identify major challenges for trust in different areas of our contemporary e-society and to reflect upon the regulatory strategies to address these challenges. Patrick Ryan discussed how the perception of trust in cloud computing is still largely formed by the views that people have from their use of computers over the past decades where a localized nature was the norm. Luciana Duranti argued that Cloud Providers currently offer limited assurances in terms of reliability and authenticity. Tom Smedinghoff found that there is a real mix between government-issued identity card schemes, combined with private-sector issued credentials, as well as approaches seeking to combine the two types of systems.
