Bellovin (2009) explores this question. For this Discussion, you will research the technical aspects of preventing unauthorised deployment of nuclear weapons.

DQ 2 Trust computation in computer systems

Trusted Computing Group (TCG) has developed the Trusted Computing Platform Architecture (TCPA). Programmers consider it to be a trusted computing base (TCB) development for distributed systems connected over a network. It actually provides a foundation for building and managing controlled secure environments for running applications and processing (protected) content. For this Discussion, you will review one of the articles in the UoL library that addresses trust computation in computer systems.

To complete this Discussion:

Post: Select and summarise an article from the University of Liverpool online library that addresses trust computation in computer systems. Analyse how trust is used in controlling access to resources. Evaluate the proposed solution used in emergent environments such as BYOD, cloud and pervasive environments.
