Identifying Malicious Peers Before It's Too Late: A Decentralized Secure Peer Sampling Service

Gian Paolo Jesi, David Hales, Maarten van Steen
2007 First International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO 2007)  
Many unstructured peer to peer (P2P) systems rely on a Peer Sampling Service (PSS) that returns randomly sampled nodes from the population comprising the system.  ...  However, such services can be defeated easily by malicious nodes executing "hub attacks" which distort the PSS such that all nodes in the network, ultimately, only gain access to malicious nodes.  ...  In other words, we present a fully decenralized Secure Peer Sampling Service (SPSS). Previously, we proposed a centralized SPSS approach and obtained good results [6] .  ...

A Best-Effort Mechanism for Service Deployment in Contributory Computer Systems

Daniel Lázaro Iglesias, Joan Manuel Marquès Puig, Josep Jorba Esteve
2009 2009 International Conference on Complex, Intelligent and Software Intensive Systems  
In parallel to these advances, peer-to-peer (P2P) networks have become popular among Internet users and a growing field of research for developing distributed systems with desirable features like decentralization  ...  These mechanisms are decentralized, scalable and failure tolerant.  ...  The security of the decentralized mechanisms is high since nodes register in a number of nodes, and therefore cannot be hidden by a single malicious node.  ...
