FUTURE TRUST FORECAST IN OPEN MOBILE AGENT ENVIRONMENT

Kłopotek A. Mieczysław, Wolski Michał

Abstract

Open Mobile Agent Environments, where entities can join and leave the system at any time, are particularly susceptible to the attacks of malicious entities. Hence intense studies of potential solutions of related problems are needed, including proper and speedy estimation of node’s trustworthiness. We propose an optimisation method for trust estimation (reputation forecasting) and apply it to two known reputation metrics (eBay and BetaSystem). We show results of simulations comparing the effectiveness of reputation discovery using the original algorithm and the optimized (forecasting reputation) one.
