Trust is an important computing networks concept and remains an issue not just in social platforms but also in networks in the deliverance of Quality of service (QoS). Video Streaming has, over the years gained prominence in mobile and vehicular ad hoc networks. However, it is faced with several challenges of being vulnerable to different attacks and poor QoS. Therefore, this paper proposed a robust and efficient trust management framework in an effort to eliminate the poor QoS due to network detriments caused by the dynamic topology of a Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET). The proposed trust framework in the network is aimed to assist in node accountability and QoS attainment. That is, it does not remove the dynamic topology issue but it strives to attain nodes’ trustworthiness and excellent QoS despite the conditions set out against the network. The proposed trust framework is the application-centric trust management framework with distributed trust computations (AppTrusFram). It merges the concept of trust together with QoS in an application scenario. The paper present a theoretical-design solution to the topology related issues and discussed issues found in other proposed solutions.
