A robust trust model for service oriented systems

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In service-oriented computing applications, service consumers and providers need to

    evaluate the trust levels of potential partners before engaging in interactions. The accuracy

    of trust evaluation greatly affects the success rate of the interaction. Trust evaluation

    is a challenging problem in open and dynamic environment as there is no central

    mediator to manage standardized evaluation criteria or reputation records. In this paper,

    a novel trust model, called the priority-based trust model, is presented. The model derives

    the trustworthiness of a service provider from designated referees and its historical

    performance. In addition, consumers can specify their preferred priorities which will affect

    the result of trust evaluations. The experimental results show that the proposed model has

    better performance than other trust models, especially in open and dynamic environments.
