The nature of self-organization and the limitation of individual resources, MANET always confront security and selfishness issues. In this paper, the authors design trusted routing protocols using trusted frame works and intrusion detection system (secure protocol) for MANET called TAODV. Their results show that the cumulative utilities of cooperative nodes are increased steadily. The Trust Scheme evaluates the behavior of all nodes by establishing a trust value for each node in the network that represents the trustworthiness of each one thereby identifies and eliminates the malicious nodes.
