This topic happened to struck my mind during a meeting with my boss a few days ago. I’m glad to have met a technie boss who is generous with his knowledge and willing to provide lengthy high end ‘lectures’...much better than my previous lecturers. And the coolest thing is that he did research too, not to mention showing us some real-life technologies which we never thought or imagined of.
Anyhow, back to the topic – Chain of Trust ~~~ sounds like some jargons.
In ‘layman’ terms, it is...chain----of----trust!
What does that mean?
Here’s the explaination,
If i m to tell u that next Friday is a holiday, would you believe me?
Definitely not, unless you knw that I got my resources from a trusted identity, for example the government who declared this.
You may not believe me either if I mentioned that i got the news from Tom, Dick, or Harry or whomsoever which u dun even know of.
But if the government is to bestow Tom as the President, and Tom announces the holiday, then the chances is that everyone will believe him.
You trust A
A trust B
You trust B too.
See? As simple as that.
Well, I use to have a huge chain of trust being an ‘innocence’ kid, but as I grow older, it has been limited and shrunk, due to scepticism, hence explaining my nature of being a reserved person.
So, how wide is your chain of trust?
