Ad-hoc network infrastructure is dynamically changing, and the links are wireless with less capacity and more prone to errors. Adding trust to the existing security infrastructures would enhance the security of these environments. Describing components and their sub-components using ontologies, creates a methodology and mechanism in order to efficiently design. With a viewpoint to add trust as a component in traditional OLSR routing protocol to enhance the security of ad-hoc network and to present the modified structure in an efficient way, ontological engineering approach was used. This paper presents the ontological view of trusted OLSR protocol where knowledge and information are structured on classes and concepts.
