Study of implementation of trustAuthor(s): Jiang He
This research developed a system of trusted agents and user nodes that cooperated to exchange behavior reports and establish a record of each nodeÂs behavior history. This history, based on reports and observations, was expressed as a reputation index (RI). The RI, with evidence in the form of signed FIs, provided an expectation of their partnerÂs behavior before entering into or dissolving an association. By providing an indication of each otherÂs trustworthiness, nodes avoided misbehaving nodes.
