Abstract

Agent-based E-business opens up a computational direction, in which software agents behave on behalf of their owners. However, enabling agents to make decisions and exploiting information to other unknown agents have introduced some security challenges among them is trust relationship while agents are dealing with unknown environments and their residences. Despite existing of some sophisticated proposed approaches addressing the above problem, most of them are suffering from complexity and therefore drawback from development. We propose an efficient trust model for distributed systems mainly focusing on multi-agent systems. We provide a feasible mechanism using some well-known cryptographic techniques such that not only it addresses the above issue but also guarantees the security and resistibility of the model against some attacks.
