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

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
