A secure network is considered to be an important goal of the Future Internet; one way which can be embodied is by having flexible and robust routing functionality with built-in security and trustworthy mechanisms. However, there is a fundamental and important challenge how to determine the trustworthiness to every traffic flow to realize trustable communications. In this paper, the authors propose a framework to manage the trustworthiness automatically based on the policy by administrator, hysteresis of the traffic, and/or behavior of end users. They describe the role and function on to manage policy and trustworthiness and illustrate the implementation of SeRViTR, which is a trust routing framework, with communication experiment.
