An open challenge in trustworthy computing is the development of a trustworthy network since network plays an essential role of current computing infrastructure (e.g., grid computing, cloud computing, etc.). In order to have a trustworthy network, security, privacy, and reliability must be protected on every major network component. For instance, if there is no trusted mechanism to enforce security protection of every data transaction on major network components, a network cannot be relied on performing trustworthy computing. It has been observed that trustworthy network cannot be practically achieved if there is no trusted integration of major network components. In this paper, we discuss the challenges in building a trustworthy network and develop a trustworthy network model that is both scalable and interoperable with existing and future network architectures.
