Abstract:

Technologies are shown for trust delegation that involve receiving a first request from a subject client and responding by sending a first token having first permissions to the subject client. A second request from a first actor includes the first token and responding involves linking the first actor to the subject client in a trust stack and sending a second token to the first actor with second permissions, the second token being a first complex token that identifies the subject client and the first actor. A third request from a second actor includes the second token and responding to the third request involves linking the second actor to the first actor in the trust stack, and sending a third token to the second actor partner with third permissions, the third token being a second complex token that identifies the first actor and the second actor.

Abstract:

Aspects of the present disclosure relate to a multi-dimensional commerce platform that may be utilized for the communication of data. Aspects of the multi- dimensional commerce platform may include various functional components to facilitate a system to receive inventory data at a first server associated with the multi-dimensional commerce platform, provide a second server associated with a third-party (e.g., a third party seller/distributor) access to the inventory data, alter or modify the inventory data based on attributes of the second server, and cause display of a presentation of the modified inventory data at a client device.
