An Automated Trust Model For Client-Server And Peer-To-Peer System
To maintain trust in peer-to-peer system is to difficult as there is no central server in between peers. To create
trust in between peers can avoid attacks from malicious peers. This paper presents an automated trust model which takes into
consideration peers past interaction and recommendations to choose trustworthy peer. While evaluating trustworthiness
parameters like importance, recentness and peer satisfaction is taken into consideration. Recommenders trustworthiness and
confidence about a recommendation are also considered while evaluating recommendations. We have implemented access
control technology in the P2P file sharing system and for that we have used symmentric encryption with shared secrete key.
Proposed automated trust model can matigate attacks on different malicious behaviour models. Our experiments help to detect malicious peers and form a group of good peers.
