Identity-based long running negotiations


Identity based negotiations are convenient protocols to closely control users' personal data, that empower users to negotiate the trust of unknown counterparts by carefully governing the disclosure of their identities. Such type of negotiations presents, however, unique challenges, mainly caused by the way identity attributes are distributed and managed. In this paper we present novel approach for conducting long running negotiations in the context of digital identity management systems. We propose some major extensions to an existing trust negotiation protocol to support negotiations that are conducted during multiple sessions. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time a protocol for conducting trust negotiations over multiple sessions is presented.
