An incentive compatible reputation mechanism for ubiquitous computing environments
The vision of ubiquitous computing is becoming a reality thanks to the advent of portable devices and the advances in wireless networking technologies. It aims to facilitate user tasks through seamless utilization of services available in the surrounding environments. In such distributed environments featuring openness, interactions, especially service provision and consumption, between entities that are unknown or barely known to each other, are commonplace. Trust management through reputation mechanism to facilitate such interactions is recognized as an important element of ubiquitous computing. It is, however, faced by the problems of how to stimulate reputation information sharing and honest recommendation elicitation.

It is based on probability theory and supports reputation evolution and propagation. Our reputation mechanism not...
