Abstract

This project represents an attempt to design a trust-based security model for peer to peer networks that mimics the behavior exhibited by people in social networks. Each node monitors the activity of nodes it interacts with. Nodes that are observed to be well-behaved are rewarded with extra privileges over time, and nodes that misbehave are expelled from the network.
