Trust Bundles

Establishing the highest level of trust for secure interoperable exchange

Trust Bundles Overview

Trust Bundles instill confidence to facilitate interoperable exchange in a uniform and scalable manner, consistent with industry best practices for security and trust. Participants in a trust bundle avoid the need for further one-off negotiations between relying parties who participate in the bundle, reducing operational costs and ensuring transparency and accountability.

Network Services Fees

DirectTrust Network Services Fees are assessed based on the number of addresses issued and an estimate of six months of transactions based on historical data in order to equitably distribute the operating costs of the network among participating HISPs.  The model utilizes a Base Tier with included address and transactions, and features two additional tiers for smooth scaling.  The model is cumulative in that a HISP will pay for addresses and transactions they use in each tier. Members of DirectTrust are offered a discounted fee.

DirectTrust Network Services Fees are invoiced on a semi-annual basis, with service dates from January through June, and July through December. Invoices are sent 60 days prior to the due date, and payment may be made by check or credit card. Questions can be directed to [email protected].
