The paper “BiRep: A Reputation Scheme to Mitigate the Effects of Black-Hole Nodes in Delay-Tolerant Internet of Vehicles” co-authored by Naercio Magaia (LASIGE integrated researcher), has been published at Sensors, a top-ranked networking journal (IF: 3.275, h5-index: 104).

It proposes a decentralized reputation scheme called BiRep that identifies and punishes black-hole nodes in the Delay-Tolerant Internet of Vehicles. Performance evaluation shows excellent results in all scenarios, comparable or better to other reputation schemes, significantly increasing the delivery ratio of messages.
