Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) were originally designed for a cooperative environment. To use them in hostile environments, trust-based routing can be used, where instead of establishing the shortest routes as done in traditional routing protocols, most trusted routes are established. In this paper, the authors present a light-weight trust-based routing protocol. It is light-weight in the sense that the Intrusion Detection System (IDS) used for estimating the trust that one node has for another, consumes limited computational resource.
