Distributed protocols implementations over a large network is a well-studied problem that converges asymptotically; however, existing protocols do not provide a way for each node to distributively detect the level of trust of another node. In this paper a method is developed to distributively determine whether a certain node should be trusted or not. In absence of such a method all nodes in the network keep communicating and running various computations even a certain node is known to be the origin of unwanted traffic, which is not preferable as in large-scale distributed networks resources like power are limited. Moreover, this additional communication can cause signal interference with other critical information. This distributed data security protocol is expected to take finite time and occurs at each node simultaneously.
