A Reputation-based Trust Management in Peer-to-Peer Network Systems
Peer-to-peer networks have gained a lot of attention over the last couple of years, mainly due to the popularity of the free multimedia file-sharing program Napster and a legal battle around it. Being open by nature P2P systems represent an ideal environment for various types of malicious intrusions. The problem of securing hosts on P2P network while keeping the openness of the system has been studied extensively over last couple of years but still remains open. Existing solutions based on reputation management either employ centralized algorithms or rely on peers' cooperation on the network. We describe a fully decentralized approach that allows computing peers' reputation based on the traffic between a node and its peers, independently of these peers willingness to cooperate in calculation of their reputation.
