We present a mathematical framework for communicating about trust in terms of interactions. We argue that sharing an ontology about trust is not enough and that interactions are the building blocks that all trust- and reputation models use to form their evaluations. Thus, a way of talking about these interactions is essential to gossiping in open heterogeneous environments. We give an overview of the formal framework we propose for aligning trust, based on the gossip agents send.
