ABSTRACT
In P2P systems groups are typically formed to share resources and/or to carry on joint tasks. In distributed environments formed by a large number of peers conventional authentication techniques are inadequate for the group joining process, and more advanced ones are needed. In this work we propose a novel peer group joining protocol. We introduce a highly expressive resource negotiation language, able to support the specification of a large variety of conditions applying to single peers or groups of peers. Moreover, we define protocols to test such resource availability customized to the level of assurance required by the peers. Our results show the robustness of our approach in detecting malicious peers, detected both during the negotiation and during the peer group lifetime. Current P2P systems adopt peer authentication techniques based on namely login-password and PKI certificates. Groups are formed by state the conditions under which a new peer can join the group and the conditions that a joining peer wants to be satisfied to join the group. Trust negotiations allow two stranger parties wishing to exchange online resources to establish a mutual trust relationship. . Proposed system is established through an exchange of digital credentials. Our negotiation-based join protocols include algorithms for policies exchange and resource verification. peer has joined a group must be satisfied not only when the membership has been granted to such peer but for all the duration of the membership
