Schemes for Privately Computing Trust and Reputation

  title={Schemes for Privately Computing Trust and Reputation},
  author={Nurit Gal-Oz and Niv Gilboa and Ehud Gudes},
Trust and Reputation systems in distributed environments attain widespread interest as online communities are becoming an inherent part of the daily routine of Internet users. Several models for Trust and Reputation have been suggested recently, among them the Knots model [8]. The Knots model provides a member of a community with a method to compute the reputation of other community members. Reputation in this model is subjective and tailored to the taste and choices of the computing member and… 
Trust and reputation in and across virtual communities
This tutorial motivates the use of trust and reputation systems and survey some of the important models introduced in the past decade, and presents work on the knot model, which deals with communities of strangers.
Privacy-Preserving Reputation Systems Based on Blockchain and Other Cryptographic Building Blocks: A Survey
This survey proposes analysis frameworks for privacy-preserving reputation systems using blockchain-based systems as they are a recent significant development in the area and provides several insights and directions for future research.
Learning Whom to Trust in a Privacy-Friendly Way
The proposed approach is the first that enables the trusting entities to learn about the trustworthiness of their recommenders at the same time and by using zero-knowledge proofs for assuring the correctness of this additional information.
Privacy Issues with Sharing and Computing Reputation across Communities
The privacy concerns in the Cross-Community Reputation (CCR) model for sharing reputation knowledge across communities are discussed and modeled, and a policy-based approach that copes with them is presented.
Sybil-Free Pseudonyms, Privacy and Trust: Identity Management in the Internet of Services
This work proposes an identity management system that supports role-based pseudonyms that are bound to a given set of services (service contexts) and support the use of reputation systems and presents an attacker model.
Anonymity-preserving Reputation Management System for health sector
This paper presents a framework for solving the problem of reconciling trust with anonymity in the health sector through Anonymous Reputation Management protocol and Context-aware Trustworthiness Assessment (CTA) protocol, and simulation results verify the accuracy of the proposed context-aware trust assessment scheme.


Methods for Computing Trust and Reputation While Preserving Privacy
The present paper discusses the computation of reputation in trust based models, while preserving members' private information, and the advantages and disadvantages in terms of privacy and communication overhead are analyzed.
Computing Reputation for Collaborative Private Networks
A new reputation model based on OWA and WOWA operators is proposed that is computed in a private way using the homomorphic properties of elGamal crypto-system and it is possible to introduce user preferences inside reputation computation.
A Robust and Knot-Aware Trust-Based Reputation Model
The knot-aware trust-based reputation model for large-scale virtual communities is introduced and an interesting and beneficial feature of the model is that it naturally prevents malicious attempts to bias community members’ reputation.
Parameter learning of personalized trust models in broker-based distributed trust management
Distributed trust management addresses the challenges of eliciting, evaluating and propagating trust for service providers on the distributed network. By delegating trust management to brokers,
CCR: A Model for Sharing Reputation Knowledge Across Virtual Communities
The CCR model identifies the fundamental terms required for a meaningful sharing of reputation information among communities and proposes means to make them feasible and inherently supports policies specified by both communities and users.
Design Options for Privacy-Respecting Reputation Systems within Centralised Internet Communities
A more privacy-enhancing design of reputation systems is needed while keeping the trust provided to the members by the use of reputations, and the privacy it provides with common information-theoretic models is analyzed.
TrustBAC: integrating trust relationships into the RBAC model for access control in open systems
The TrustBAC model is proposed, which extends the conventional role based access control model with the notion of trust levels and incorporates the advantages of both the role basedAccess control model and credential basedaccess control models.
A computational model of trust and reputation
This paper first surveys existing literatures on trust, reputation and a related concept: reciprocity and proposes a computational model that can be implemented in a real system to consistently calculate agents' trust and reputation scores.
Review on Computational Trust and Reputation Models
This review wants to offer a panoramic view on current computational trust and reputation models in virtual societies.
