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 Agent of 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 party|peer-party 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.
