Executive Summary

Many applications running on the Internet operate in fully or semi-distributed fashion including P2P networks or social networks. Distributed applications exhibit many advantages over classical client-server models regarding scalability, fault tolerance, and cost. Unfortunately, the distributed system operation also brings many security threats along that challenge their performance and reliability. In particular, faulty or mis-behaving nodes cannot collude to subvert the system operation. This paper addresses the above threats by applying cooperative security techniques to relevant distributed systems in the Internet.
