IoT devices dealing with complex tasks require powerful hardware capabilities or to get resources on the cloud. When an IoT device is “virtualized” on the Cloud, it can rely on one or more software agent that can exploit its social attitude to interact and cooperate. In this context, the choice of a partner to cooperate is a sensitive question but when an agent cannot perform a reliable choice then, like real communities, it can ask information to other agents it considers as trustworthy. This process can be improved by partitioning the agents in groups by using trust relationships to allow agents to interact with the most reliable partners. To this aim, we designed an algorithm to form agent groups based on reliability and reputation information and the results of some simulations confirmed its potential advantages.

Abstract

IoT devices dealing with complex tasks require powerful hardware capabilities or to get resources on the cloud. When an IoT device is “virtualized” on the Cloud, it can rely on one or more software agent that can exploit its social attitude to interact and cooperate. In this context, the choice of a partner to cooperate is a sensitive question but when an agent cannot perform a reliable choice then, like real communities, it can ask information to other agents it considers as trustworthy. This process can be improved by partitioning the agents in groups by using trust relationships to allow agents to interact with the most reliable partners. To this aim, we designed an algorithm to form agent groups based on reliability and reputation information and the results of some simulations confirmed its potential advantages.
