Incentive-Compatibility, Individual-Rationality and Fairness for Quality of Service Claims

Byde, Andrew


Keyword(s): QoS; services; trust; pricing

Abstract: This document discusses extensions to the pricing structures presented in [2] for the provision of IT services that ensure trust without requiring repeated interactions between service providers and users. We extend [2] by providing theorems demonstrating the existence of incentive-compatible mechanisms for a broad class of expected costs to the user, and also introduce a notion of fairness with which to constrain the space of acceptable mechanisms.
