This position paper introduces a holistic approach addressing the issue of trustworthy communications systems, their societal drivers and the requirements they place on the heterogeneous communications infrastructure for offering reliable services in the Future of the Internet. In particular, we outline some initial ideas that can be used to devise a design-for-trust framework for the Future of the Internet. We propose, in this approach, to support trust on three crucial interrelated concepts: 1) the concept of flat ontology 2) the concept of assemblage and 3) the concept of semantic annotations to compose the ontology.
