The success of Internet-based attacks and frauds targeting financial institutions highlights their inadequacy when facing such threats in isolation. Financial players need to coordinate their efforts by sharing and correlating suspicious activities occurring at multiple, geographically distributed sites. CoMiFin, an European project, is developing a collaborative security framework, on top of the Internet, centered on the Semantic Room abstraction. This abstraction allows financial institutions to share and process high volumes of events concerning massive threats (e.g., Distributed Denial of Service) in a private and secure way.Due to the sensitive nature of the information flowing in Semantic Rooms, and the privacy and security requirements then required, mechanisms ensuring mutual trust among Semantic Room members (potentially competitive financial players) must be provided. This paper focuses on the design and preliminary implementation of a trust management architecture that can be configured with trust and reputation policies and deployed in Semantic Rooms.
