A lightweight model of trust propagation in a multi-client network environment: to what extent does experience matter?
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThe increasing growth in the application of global computing and pervasive systems has necessitated careful consideration of security issues. In particular, there has been a growth in the use of electronic communities, in which there exist many relationships between different entities. Such relationships require establishing trust between entities and a great deal of effort has been expended in developing accurate and reliable models of trust in such multi-client environments. Many of these models are complex and not necessarily guaranteed to give accurate trust predictions. In this paper we present a review of some of these models before proposing a simple, lightweight model for trust. The proposed model does not require the estimation of a large parameter set, nor make great assumptions about the parameters that affect trust.
