Strategic Trust

Jeffrey Pawlick, Quanyan Zhu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Because of threats to the IoT, agents in the network must decide whether to trust other possibly-malicious agents, i.e., must assess their reliability and dependability. Unfortunately, the dynamic and plug-n-play nature of the IoT makes reputation-based trust systems insufficient. Hence, this chapter develops a framework for predictive or strategic trust in which agents make decisions in view of the incentives of the agents with whom they are communicating.
