Trust between two communicating peers is increasingly catching the attention of the research community. Several trust models and trust management protocols have been proposed to assist the task of establishing trust between two communicating peers. Allt he proposed trustm odels make use of reputation mechanisms in order to establish trust between the two communicating peers. However, the currently proposed trust models do not take into account the personal nature of trust. Additionally, they do not propose a mechanism that can handle incorrect recommendations by malicious peers. In thisp aper, we propose the use of repute relationshipsa s a mechanism for countering the problems associated with the current trust models for peer-to-peer systems. We present a formal definition of repute relationships and discuss how the use ofr epute relationships can counter the problems existing within the current trustm odels.
