The Internet of Things (IoT) is characterized by the seamless integration of heterogeneous devices into information networks to enable collaborative environments, specifically those concerning the collection of data and exchange of information and services. Security and trustworthiness are among the critical requirements for the effective deployment of IoT systems. However, trust management in IoT is extremely challenging due to its open environment, where the quality of information is often unknown because entities may misbehave. A hybrid context-aware trust and reputation management protocol is presented for fog-based IoT that addresses adaptivity, survivability, and scalability requirements. Through simulation, the effectiveness of the proposed protocol is demonstrated.
