The maximum flow based trust mechanism can make normal peers cluster together to isolate those different types of malicious peers (IMPs, CMPs, and DMPs). Request peers firstly select those peers that are in cluster as service providers; in this way, the malicious peers are constrained to carry out transaction even if they have high reputation values. Recall and precision, two widely used statistical classifications, are introduced by design to obtain rational amount of original peers in cluster.
