TRUST BY ASSOCIATION: A META-REPUTATION SYSTEM FOR PEER-TO-PEER NETWORKS

Matthew Kellett, Thomas Tran, Ming Li
2011 Computational intelligence  
Using this structure, we create a meta-reputation system where we measure a peer's trustworthiness not only by its own behaviour, but also by the behaviour of the peers it has invited to join.  ...  Unfortunately, these trust mechanisms often do little to keep badly-behaving peers from entering and taking advantage of the network, which makes the resulting network difficult or impossible to use for  ...  If a peer creates or invites multiple levels of malicious peers, it can raise the cost to use the network for every peer in its branch of the tree.  ...
