The open nature of the peer-to-peer systems exposes them to malicious actions. Here in this paper, the authors introducing distributed algorithms that can enable peer to get the trustworthiness of other peers based on interactions of those peers in the past with other peers. The peers in the network are able of creating a trust network on their own proximity by the help of the local information it already have with it and without trying to learn any global trust information. The contexts of the trust, recommendation and service contexts are defined for measuring the trustworthiness in providing services to the other peers and giving recommendations about the other peers.
