2. Listservers at the MCG:
Unmoderated subscription, posting
and HTML repository. An open forum for discussions on commitments and liabilites
that depend on trust, trust modelling, international legal aspects, identification,
certificate semantics, new certification standards, authorization and delegation,
non-repudiation, plus any other area related to trust issues. Trust-ref
also doubles as an HTML searchable repository for subjects related to trust
in communication protocols and the Internet in general.
This list is anonymized,
as a tool to enhance criativity and reduce communication barriers. The
list is moderated for entry but unmoderated for posting. Only list participants
can post messages, but the list repository is open for general reading.
The list discusses Meta-Certificates and certification issues in support
all postings to the list are stripped clean of all source and routing information,
retaining only the subject, date and body fields, with no attachments or
MIME fields. The postings are anonymously identified with a shadow-id --
a "salted-version" of the one-way SHA-1 hash function of the sender's e-mail
-- and then echoed to the participants, but any user can identify
himself if so wished.
