A Secured Agent-based Model for a Peer-to-Peer System

Jude Opuh, Bartholomew Eke, Edem Williams


In this paper, information exchange that is devoid of control in the peer-to-peer communication, exposes peer to malicious activities, insecure communication, loss of significant data or failure of the system. The complexity and perceived compromise in peers communicating at different levels necessitates modeling a secured agent-based model for a peer-to-peer system. This work was designed to accommodate peer registration phase that will allow peers on satisfying defined requirement, request for connection to the super peer, subsequently guaranteeing and promoting healthy system. The agent module in the network ascertains successfully connected peers on the network, certifying feedback agent goal and ready for peer communication. The result shows that peculiar security attacks from malicious and un-registered peers are systematically controlled in the peer-to-peer system.

Key words : Peer-to-peer, Agent-based, Secured and Communication.
