Vehicular ad-hoc network (VANET) and internet-of-vehicles (IoV) are complex networks which provide a unique platform for vehicles to communicate and exchange critical information (such as collision avoidance warnings) with each other in an intelligent manner. Thus, the information disseminated in the network should be authentic and originated from legitimate vehicles. Creating a trusted environment in the network can enable the vehicles to identify and revoke malicious ones. Trust is an important concept in VANET and IoV to achieve security in the network, where every vehicle equipped with an appropriate trust model can evaluate the trustworthiness of the received information and its sender. This chapter discusses trust in both VANET and IoV and identifies various trust models developed for VANET and IoV. The contribution of this chapter is threefold. First, the authors present a detailed taxonomy of trust models in VANET and IoV. Second, they provide current trends in the domain of trust management specifically for VANET and IoV, and finally, they provide various open research directions.
