Ensuring public trust in the e-government information security is essential for full use of the potential of e-government. In this paper, we analyze the mechanisms for building trust in the e-government information security, and propose a model for assessment of this trust. The model is based on the integration of the values of reputation, calculated on the basis of trust from various sources, taking into account the importance weights of sources. (pp. 25-32)
