Taxonomy of Trust: Categorizing P2P Reputation Systems

Marti, Sergio and Garcia-Molina, Hector (2005) Taxonomy of Trust: Categorizing P2P Reputation Systems. Working Paper. Stanford InfoLab.




The field of peer-to-peer reputation systems has exploded in the last few years. Our goal is to organize existing ideas and work to facilitate system design. We present a taxonomy of reputation system components, their properties, and discuss how user behavior and technical constraints can conflict. In our discussion, we describe research that exemplifies compromises made to deliver a useable, implementable system.
