Trust Management for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks Using Recommendation Exchange Protocol
Mobile Ad hoc NETwork (MANETs) is a Collection of mobile nodes connected with wireless links MANET has no fixed topology as the nodes are moving constantly form one place to another place. All the nodes must co-operate with each other in order to route the packets. Cooperating nodes must trust each other. In defining and managing trust in a military MANET, the authors must consider the interactions between the composite cognitive, social, information and communication networks, and take into account the severe resource constraints (e.g., computing power, energy, bandwidth, time), and dynamics (e.g., topology changes, mobility, node failure, propagation channel conditions).
