We consider Internet-based master-worker computations, where a master processor assigns, across the Internet, a computational task to a set of untrusted worker processors, and collects their responses; examples of such computations are the ¿@home¿ projects such as SETI. Prior work dealing with Internet-based task computations has either considered only rational, or only malicious and altruistic workers. Altruistic workers always return the correct result of the task, malicious workers always… CONTINUE READING
