Trust-Aware Information Dissemination in Social Network
Information dissemination security is a crucial factor for social network interaction. In this paper, we present a trust-aware information dissemination algorithm for social network in order to make the nodes transmitting more trustable information. Firstly, we propose information trust computation from two aspects: entity trust of information and source trust. Two above aspects can be integrated into whole trust of information. Likewise, we propose the trust relationship comutation method among nodes. Further, we present a multiple paths trust computation method (MPTC) for information dissmination in social network. Then, we address the trust-aware information dissemination algorithm (TIDA) based on above trust computaiton. Finally, our experiments show that TIDA is a feasible and effective solution for social network information dissemination.
