To distinguish the reliabilities of different resources is difficult in the grid environment. For the first time the signaling game theory is applied to the research on grid resource reliability, and a grid resource reliability model based on promise is proposed in this paper. The analyses and the emulation results indicate that the resource provider should abandon the cheating motivation voluntarily. The resource demander could make right decision without other nodes' recommendations, the calculation and communication is reduced remarkably. This is a new solution to the problem of distinguishing resources reliabilities in the grid environment.
