A Collusion-Resistant Trust Management Scheme for Distributed P2P Network

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 214)


Current trust management employed by the existing peer-to-peer networks is faced with various threats from malicious nodes. If some nodes are contaminated, the network quality is getting to be down. So it eventually makes worse the confidence of among the users. This paper deals with a trust management to protect the attack of the malicious nodes in the distributed P2P network. Especially, it aims to keep safe against the collusive attack. We try to improve the accuracy of node trust to effectively protect this attack.
