© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015. The Internet of Things - IoT - is a new paradigm in technology that allows most physical ‘things’ to contact each other. Trust between IoT devices is a critical factor. Trust in the IoT environment can be modeled using various approaches, such as confidence level and reputation parameters. Furthermore, trust is an important element in engineering reliable and scalable networks. In this paper, we survey scalable and context-aware trust management for IoT from three perspectives. First, we present an overview of the IoT and the importance of trust in relation to it, and then we provide an in-depth trust/reliable management protocol for the IoT and evaluate comparable trust management protocols. We also investigate a scalable solution for trust management in the IoT and provide a comparative evaluation of existing trust solutions. We then pre-sent a context-aware assessment for the IoT and compare the different trust solutions. Lastly, we give a full comparative analysis of trust/reliability management in the IoT. Our results are drawn from this comparative analysis, and directions for future research are outlined.
