Peer-to-peer applications can benefit from human friendship networks (e.g., e-mail contacts or instant message buddy lists). However these are not always available. We propose an algorithm, called SLACER that allows peer nodes to create their own friendship networks, through randomized interactions, producing an artificial social network (ASN) where nodes share high trust with their neighbors
