Trustmark Definitions

A Trustmark Definition specifies the normative conformance criteria that a Trustmark Recipient must meet, as well as the formal assessment process that a Trustmark Provider must perform to assess whether the Trustmark Recipient qualifies for the trustmark. There can be many different types of trustmarks, and each type of trustmark has its own Trustmark Definition. Formally, a Trustmark Definition exists as an eXtensible Markup Language (XML) object that conforms to the normative structure and rules for Trustmark Definitions as defined by the Trustmark Framework Technical Specification, which is located at https://trustmark.gtri.gatech.edu/specifications/trustmark-framework. In addition, a Trustmark Definition may be represented in other formats, e.g., HTML, for greater human readability. Use the link below to visit the index page for all Trustmark Definitions developed under this project. Each Trustmark Definition is provided in both XML and HTML format.

Trust Interoperability Profiles

A Trustmark Relying Party is any entity (organization or individual) that relies on trustmarks as a means for establishing third-party-based trust. A Trustmark Relying Party, or a group that represents the interests of multiple Trustmark Relying Parties with similar requirements, may define a Trust Interoperability Profile that expresses a trust and interoperability policy in terms of a set of trustmarks that a Trustmark Recipient must possess, in order to meet the policy's requirements. A Trust Interoperability Profile may specify not only which trustmarks are required (based on one or more Trustmark Definitions), but also which Trustmark Provider(s) are deemed trustworthy for each trustmark. Formally, a Trust Interoperability Profile exists as an eXtensible Markup Language (XML) object that conforms to the normative structure and rules for Trustmark Definitions as defined by the Trustmark Framework Technical Specification, which is located at https://trustmark.gtri.gatech.edu/specifications/trustmark-framework. In addition, a Trust Interoperability Profile may be represented in other formats, e.g., HTML, for greater human readability.
