Contribution A reputation engine (called Beta Reputation System) is proposed based on the beta probability density function which can be used to represent probability distributions of binary events (1/0 for success/failure or satisfactory/unsatisfactory) • Posteriori probabilities of binary events can be represented as beta distributions • A sound basis in the theory of statistics • Applicable to both centralized and distributed systems 5
