Abstract: The ongoing evolution of the Internet towards the Internet of Things (IoT) is creating new exciting markets and applications, but also poses new questions on the relationship between the human subjects and the IoT devices and services. Connected medical devices, wearable sensors, smart cars and smart appliances will become more and more extensions of the human body and mind, enhancing the synergies between humans, the physical, and the digital world. In this context, there is the risk that humans increasingly shift or delegate their freedom and capability to act (agency) to IoT “things”, which have unclear or undefined levels of trust. There is the need to create “more robustly” trusted and effective digital relationships, where the users can maintain their control on the IoT services and the generated flows of data. In addition, they should have reliable knowledge of the levels of trust provided by the IoT technologies. In this paper, we discuss how these new relationships should be formed, we identify the main challenges for building trust in IoT and we propose a model-based approach for risk, trust, and usage control policies. In our vision, the integration of specific technological tools, coupled with a high level of choice for the citizen/user can be used to mitigate these challenges.
