You might take a look at some work Graham Klyne and Brian Mathews did 
during the SWAD-Europe project:

 From http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/intro.html
Workpackage 11: Distributed trust systems. See Trust website.
     * 11.1 Recommendation systems as a basis for trust on the Semantic 
Web (pdfs: introduction, part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5), ( html)
     * 11.2 Framework for Security and Trust Standards: Experiments and 
Implementations (pdfs: Introduction, Vocabularies and Architecture for 
Implementing Trust in the Semantic Web, Using RDF for Home Network 
Configuration),

The main links here would be:
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/pdf/11.2b.pdf
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/trust/11.2/homenetworkconfig.html
http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/Europe/reports/trust/11.2/homenetworkaccessconfigurationcomponents.htm

This was five years ago (whee, time flies), but might be of interest still.

There was also some work on a "Wireless Ontology", which I recently 
re-blogged while thinking about the role of OpenID in wireless sharing 
traffic-capture portals; see http://danbri.org/words/2008/01/17/254 ah 
no, I misremember it was http://danbri.org/words/2008/04/07/298 ... see 
also the comments in that post:

cheers,

Dan
