Peer Agent

Editor's note

Additional content is needed here.


Parties that participate in a (business) transaction may use agents, e.g. for conducting communications, exchanging information, etc. We need a term that can be used in the context of an agentof such a party to refer to an actor with which that agent communicates, and of which it has been established that it is actually an agent of a peer of the party for which it is communicating.


The term 'peer agent' is specifically used in the context of a (digital) actor that communicates with another (digital) actor on behalf of a party that is conducting a (business) transaction with some other party.
