However, as in P2P systems, this form of cooperative sharing architecture raises significant concerns about the effect of free-riders: nodes that utilise the bandwidth of others without providing an adequate return to the community. To address this problem, we propose STRUDEL, a distributed framework that tackles the problem of free-riders and consists of: (i) a mechanism for the detection of malicious peers; (ii) a formal Bayesian trust model, to assess peers’ trustworthiness; (iii) a forwarding mechanism based on the maximisation of trust-informed utility.
