Abstract

Grid Computing Systems are examples for open systems with heterogeneous and potentially malicious entities. Such systems can be controlled by system-wide intelligent control mechanisms working on trust relationships between these entities. Trust relationships are based on ratings among individual entities and represent system-wide information. In this paper, we propose to utilise a normative approach for the system-level control loop working on basis of these trust values. Thereby, a normative approach does not interfere with the entities’ autonomy and handles each system as black box. Implicit rules already existing in the system are turned into explicit norms – which in turn are becoming mandatory for all entities. This allows the distributed systems to derive the desired behaviour and cooperate in reaction to disturbed situations such as attacks.
