Mobile software agents can play a vital role to establish a strong relation between organizations. Gaining trust between software agents and organization is one of the key challenges. For the transactions to be successful, it is important to rely upon the trust exchange formalism, trust acknowledge and recording system for every major transaction. This paper presents the mechanism established, trust validity, trust verification and authentication strategies for achieving successful transactions in networks.
