Microsoft's Complete Trust Domain Model

The Complete Trust Domain Model (more commonly called the 'Complete Mess') is a design in which all domains within a network trust all of the other domains. This allows for accounts and resources to be allocated anywhere in a network. However, the task of administrating a complete trust network is very difficult. As noted above, several potential pitfalls exists. The most notable is the lack of a central authority to plan and develope the network. NT is based on the princible of a central design and control. It is under these circumstances that NT works best, and I would not recommend the complete trust model to anyone.
