In this paper, the authors present a concept of Dezert-Smarandache theory application for enhancing security in tactical Mobile Ad-hoc NETwork (MANET). Tactical MANET, due to its specification, requires collection and processing of information from different sources of diverse security and trust metrics. The authors specify the needs for building a node's situational awareness and identify data sources used for calculations of trust metrics. They provide some examples of related works and present their own conception of Dezert-Smarandache theory applicability for trust evaluation in mobile hostile environment.
