From Subjective Reputation to Verifiable Experiences - Augmenting Peer-Control Mechanisms for Open Service Ecosystems

Reputation-based trust management in Pilarcos utilizes shared experience information on the actors’ past behaviour in estimating the risks of a collaboration, and associates it with whether the relevant collaboration contract was followed, backed up with evidence in the form of nonrepudiable receipts to protect automated reputation- based trust decisions from being skewed by misinformation.
