Ad hoc network is a collection of nodes that are capable to form dynamically a temporary network without the support of any centralized fixed infrastructure. There is no central controller to determine the reliable & secure communication paths in Mobile Ad hoc network. Each node in the Ad hoc network has to rely on each other in order to forward packets, thus highly cooperative nodes are required to ensure that the initiated data transmission process does not fail. In a Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANET) where security is a crucial issue and they are forced to rely on the neighbour node, trust plays an important role that could improve the number of successful data transmission.
