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. Trust combination algorithms and trust mapping functions are provided in this model, where the former can aggregate different opinions together to get a new recommendation opinion. Based on this trust model, they design their trusted routing protocols for MANET called TAODV on top of Ad Hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol. They extend the routing table and the routing messages of ADOV with trust information which can be updated directly through monitoring in the neighborhood.
