This workplan correspond to the Summer Semester
Research program where students choose a topic and they should investigate
it. It is
of 7 milestones where they have to learn about the state of the art
in the topic selected achieving some goals and they have to present a
work at the end.
When a transaction
between two entities needs to be done, both entities will need some information
While current approaches relies on the client/server approach where one
of the two entities is registered on the other, Automated Trust Negotiation
denotes the process where both parties ask and disclose information whenever
it is needed according to their own policies.
The chosen topic consist on the integration of the Peertrust
prototype into the Edutella Peer-to-Peer network. The current Peertrust
framework behaves in a sense that each party
involved in the negotiation might act as a client or as a server. This
scenario already suggests a P2P architecture. The goal is to integrate
Peertrust in Edutella (a schema-based Peer-2-Peer network developed in
our laboratory). This integration will
allow the distribution of a query into the network receiving an answer
(if possible) from every peer.
