Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET) is a multi-hop temporary and autonomic network comprised of a set of mobile nodes. MANETs have the features of non-center, dynamically changing topology, multi-hop routing, mobile nodes, limited resources and so on, which make it face more threats. Trust evaluation is used to support nodes to cooperate in a secure and trustworthy way through evaluating the trust of participating nodes in MANETs. However, many trust evaluation models proposed for MANETs still have many problems and shortcomings. In this paper, we review the existing researches, then analyze and compare the proposed trust evaluation models by presenting and applying uniform criteria in order to point out a number of open issues and challenges and suggest future research trends.
