The Internet of Things (IoT) will consist of everyday physical objects communicating with each other via massively distributed service-oriented architectures (SOAs). One neglected area of research is how engineers developing software underlying the IoT will decide whether the services they use and compose are trustworthy. We sketch how a formal socio-cognitive theory of trust can guide empirical research on the topic, and report preliminary results from 25 engineers who were asked how they currently reason about software component trustworthiness.
