Self-organized and ad hoc communications have many fundamental principles in common and also face similar problems in the domains of security and Quality of Service. Trust management, although still in its first steps, seems capable of dealing with such problems. In this paper we present an integrated trust management framework for self-organized networks. In addition, starting from our experience with the presented framework, we indicate and discuss important research challenges (among them interoperability and integration issues) for the future evolution of the trust-based autonomic computing paradigm. We argue that ontologies can address many of these issues through the semantics they convey.Full Text at Springer, may require registration or fee
