    Trust and Risk in Internet Commerce
    L. Jean Camp

    As Internet-based commerce becomes commonplace, it is important that we
    examine the systems used for these financial transactions. Underlying
    each system is a set of assumptions, particularly about trust and
    risk. To evaluate systems, and thus to determine one's own risks,
    requires an understanding of the dimensions of trust: security, privacy,
    and reliability.In this book Jean Camp focuses on two major yet
    frequently overlooked issues in the design of Internet commerce
    systems--trust and risk.
