Second International Workshop on Trust Management in P2P Systems (IWTMP2PS2011)

Kochi, Kerala, India

July 22-24, 2011


Distributed systems involve numerous entities, many of which haven't previously interacted. A flexible and general-purpose trust management system can maintain current and consistent trustworthiness information for the different entities in a distributed system. P2P computing has emerged as a new distributed computing paradigm of sharing resources available on the Internet. The open and anonymous nature of peer-to-peer (P2P) network makes it an ideal medium for attackers to spread malicious content. The objective of IWTMP2PS is to establish a state of the art for security and trust in P2P systems, and to provide a forum for exchange of ideas between P2P researchers working on trust and security issues. IWTMP2PS2011 is co-located with The First International Conference on Advances in Computing & Communications (ACC 2011). The first edition of IWTMP2PS was organised in conjunction with Third International Conference on Network Security & Applications (CNSA-2010) in Chennai, India during July 23-25, 2010.
