Title:Probabilistic Quorum-Based Accounting for Peer-to-Peer Systems
Author(s):Conner, William G.; Nahrstedt, Klara
Subject(s):Peer-to-Peer Systems
Abstract:Providing an effective accounting scheme for decentralized peer-to-peer systems is difficult without relying on a central server or peers with special trusted status. In this paper, we present Probabilistic Quorum-based Accounting (PQA) for peer-to-peer systems. In our approach, a peer receiving a request will retrieve resource usage accounting information about the requesting peer from a quorum of peers to determine whether or not to grant the request. Our solution is completely decentralized and does not require a special trusted status for any peers.
