Definition Edit

A “trust relationship” is

allows users of one system to freely access other systems in the relationship, as if those other systems were simply extensions of the user'’s home system.[1]

Overview Edit

"Thus, a hacker who gains access to one system in such a relationship can then access all the other systems that trust it. While trust relationships are of great practical importance when working in a networked environment, they need to be carefully managed because of the risk they pose."[2]
