Ed Felten: Misleading Term of the Week: “Trusted System”

Ed Felten, Freedom To Tinker: “The meaning of “trusted” has morphed at least twice over the years. [–––] Today “trusted” seems to mean that somebody has some kind of control over the system. The key questions to ask are who has control, and what kind of control they have. Depending on the answers to those questions, a “trusted” system might be either good or bad.”
