Authentication-free fault-tolerant peer-to-peer service provisioning

  title={Authentication-free fault-tolerant peer-to-peer service provisioning},
  author={Wojciech Galuba and Karl Aberer and Zoran Despotovic and Wolfgang Kellerer},
The correct functioning of a peer-to-peer network relies on cooperative behavior of peers as service providers. Current approaches to detection and deterrence of non-cooperative behavior, such as reputation systems, rely on (1) global sharing of observations about service provisioning and (2) global authentication. These two factors severely impair the practical applicability. We propose a novel forward feedback protocol that is completely local and authentication-free and where peers locally… CONTINUE READING
