Web metering is an effective means of measuring the number of visits from clients to Web servers during a specific time frame. Naor and Pinkas, in 1998, first introduced metering schemes to evaluate the popularity of Web servers. Ogata and Kurosawa proposed two schemes that improve on the Naor-Pinkas metering schemes. This study presents a Web metering scheme which is based on the bilinear pairings and built on the GDH group. The proposed scheme can resist fraud attempts by malicious Web servers and disruptive attacks by malicious clients.
