Abstract: Security is one of the most vital aspect for implementing FANETs in adverse environments. Hence, research in this area has emerged as an important FANETs field in the recent past. Compared to wired networks, FANETs are more vulnerable to security attacks due to lack of a trusted centralized authority and easy eavesdropping. Further, as nodes in flying ad-hoc networks are susceptible to attacks, a trust model based on direct, as well as indirect trust degrees from similar trusted neighbors is integrated in order to overcome the vulnerability due to attacks by malicious/selfish nodes and to provide reliable packet transmissions. Fading away of trust is incorporated with a perspective to ensure the uncertainty of trust with time until it is updated. Also, AODV algorithm is used for routing in combination with calculated trust values so that efficient transmission of messages can take place.
