Communication infrastructures, i.e. machine-to-machine communication networks dedicated to provide certain means for participants to exchange information, become constantly more flexible and operate more dynamically. The evolution of underlying technologies introduces new features by which gradually new mechanisms and freedom in operation are enabled. Services can be dynamically redeployed during runtime, states be migrated between devices. Software-defined message exchange frameworks make data omni-available and establish interaction across all layers of abstraction. We analyze in this work various descriptive use cases for future mobile communications regarding the specific trust relations between different actors and point out the necessity for explicit trust management in the network.
