Michael N. Huhns, Ryszard Kowlczyk, Zakaria Maamar, Rainer Unland, Michael N. Huhns, Ryszard Kowlczyk, Zakaria Maamar, Rainer Unland
2012 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
Clients must be able to trust that their systems relying on the services will continue to behave as desired, and agent-based autonomic systems can help to provide the requisite level of trust.  ...  The first paper, by Brazier et al., presents initial work towards a model for dynamic service-oriented architectures (SOA), using agent-based technology, that provides different levels of abstraction for  ...  If an organisation bases its success on services provided by others, then it must be able to trust that the services will perform as promised, whenever needed.  ...

Autonomic and Trusted Computing Paradigms [chapter]

Xiaolin Li, Hui Kang, Patrick Harrington, Johnson Thomas
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Essentially, these five capabilities, coined as Self-CHROP, define an autonomic system along with other minor properties. Trusted computing targets guaranteed secured systems.  ...  Self-protection alone does not ensure the trustworthiness in autonomic systems. The new trend is to integrate both towards trusted autonomic computing systems.  ...  The following paradigms have been proposed: component-based, recovery-oriented computing, aspect-oriented programming, multi-agent systems, peer-to-peer, and service-oriented computing paradigms.  ...

Distributed goal-oriented computing

Javier Palanca, Martí Navarro, Vicente Julian, Ana García-Fornes
2012 Journal of Systems and Software  
To implement this paradigm an execution framework for a Goal-oriented Operating System has been designed.  ...  In this work we present a new computing paradigm based on goals. This paradigm is called Distributed Goal-Oriented Computing paradigm.  ...  In the Goal-Oriented Execution model, an agent A is defined through the following tuple: A = {KB, SS, CP, GS} (1) where: • KB represents the agent Knowledge Base. • SS represents a Set of Services offered  ...

Distributed Trust Management for Validating SLA Choreographies [chapter]

Irfan Ul Haq, Rehab Alnemr, Adrian Paschke, Erich Schikuta, Harold Boley, Christoph Meinel
2010 Grids and Service-Oriented Architectures for Service Level Agreements  
Elaborating our previous work on rule-based SLA validation, we propose a hybrid distributed trust model. This new model is based on Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) and reputation-based trust systems.  ...  This cross-VO hierarchical SLA aggregation requires validation, for which a distributed trust system becomes a prerequisite.  ...  Each user, agent, or service can have two values that define its reputation: an overall reputation (trusted or non-trusted for malicious users), and a context-based reputation object (RO).  ...

The Design of A Rule-based and Event-driven Trust Management Framework

Yan Wang, Kwei-Jay Lin, Duncan S. Wong, Vijay Varadharajan
2007 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE'07)  
The proposed framework is more generic and suitable for different domains and complex trust evaluation systems.  ...  In both E-Commerce (EC) and Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) environments, sellers or service providers interact with customers or service clients for services or transactions.  ...  The framework serves for the trust management in service-oriented environments, which is an integrated system combining both rules and formulas for trust computation.  ...

Towards Robust and Effective Trust Management for Security: A Survey

Dongxia Wang, Tim Muller, Yang Liu, Jie Zhang
2014 2014 IEEE 13th International Conference on Trust, Security and Privacy in Computing and Communications  
By considering both these security properties and attacks on trust management systems, our work serves to propel the design of more effective and robust trust management systems for security.  ...  There is a need for robust and effective trust management.  ...  Hence, a uniform trust threshold for all the services is infeasible. Thus, trust based access control should be service oriented, rather than device oriented.  ...

A robust trust model for service-oriented systems

Xing Su, Minjie Zhang, Yi Mu, Quan Bai
2013 Journal of computer and system sciences (Print)
