Problem statement: Trust management in a distributed dynamic environment like grid has been very vital since the allocation of appropriate resources to meet user request influences the success of the system. While considering a set of resources which are loaded invariably, balancing the load also contributes for the efficient resource utilization. Approach: This study proposes a trust calculation model, which considers weighted parameters like direct trust, reputation trust, load average information and network efficiency. Network efficiency also varies with the granularity of jobs, hence the experiment were conducted with an inclusion of this criteria. Results and Conclusion: The proposed Hybrid Model for Load aware Trust management system (HMLT) allocates the job based on the trust values. The resources with higher trust value get more jobs. As a result the performance of the proposed system found to be faster and has a better utilization of grid resources when studied in a grid environment.
