The TrustEngine is largely used as an implementation detail behind the org.eclipse.osgi.signedcontent package. OSGi services published with using the org.eclipse.osgi.service.security.TrustEngine interface are used to determine the authenticity of a certificate chain used to sign content (jars, bundles etc.). I did not remember p2 using the TrustEngine directly, but perhaps it does for authenticating other types of certificates.
Sorry, other than the javadoc published for the packages there is not a lot of documentation here.

The p2 engine makes use of the TrustEngine, however I don't remember the details of how it works.
You may also want to poke around at other parts of p2 as I just happen to remember about this ref in the engine, but there may be others.
