In cloud computing environment, as the infrastructure not owned by users, it is desirable that its security and integrity must be protected and verified time to time. In Hadoop based scalable computing setup, malfunctioning nodes generate wrong output during the run time. To detect such nodes, we create collaborative network between worker node (i.e. data node of Hadoop) and Master node (i.e. name node of Hadoop) with the help of trusted heartbeat framework (THF). We propose procedures to register node and to alter status of node based on reputation provided by other co-worker nodes.
