Trust is considered one of the most important components, assets and constructs. Currently we experience well-documented first signs of the crisis of trust on the Web. We attribute that to our inability to successfully apply our face to face experience to relationships that are web-based. We propose that the remedy is in developing such technical means that will enable the creation of remote justified trust. Such a concept of technology being 'designed for trust' requires the shared understanding of what trust is and how it can be communicated. We propose (elaborate this proposition in the paper) the approach that is close to both social and technical understanding of trust, demonstrating how such an approach can lead to design that supports trust.
