The resource allocation becomes more challenging when mobility issue and trusting are considered in grid environment. Hence it is necessary to consider the mobility of users along with the resource availability while scheduling the resources for the trusted execution of jobs. In this paper, the authors propose to design a Hierarchical Trusted Resource Allocation Architecture (HTRAA) which includes resource monitoring and scheduling operations for mobile grid. In this architecture, each cluster in mobile grid has one Cluster Head (CH). The load in each cluster head is measured by the Monitoring (MA). The Master Server (MS) selects the Cluster Head with minimum delay and load, as the best CH.
