This paper analyzes a trust model for mobile ad hoc networks. The authors provide nodes with a mechanism to build a trust relationship with its neighbors. The proposed model considers the recommendation of trustworthy neighbors and the experience of the node itself. In order to give trust value beyond the neighbor circle they are using Recommendation Exchange Protocol (REP) which is used to give recommendation about neighbor's neighbor. In existing, every node is having full details about entire nodes present in the Mobile ad hoc network but in their proposed system the individual node is not needed to maintain trust information of the entire network instead it can maintain information about the nodes in the radio range.
