An Analysis of a New P2P Trust Control Model

Zhijun WU, Jing TANG


In order to monitor efficiently the selfish behavior on networks, form reliable relations and prevent problems such as the single point of failure or bottleneck effect in traditional client-server environments, we adopt a novel P2P trust arithmetic-P-Trust referring to the social people trust relation mechanism. The direct trust arithmetic and the recommend trust arithmetic are particularly described. The P-Trust integrates the direct trust value and recommend trust value to create the final trust value. Simulations prove the P-Trust arithmetic can tackle the P2P trust problem in a simple and efficient way.
