With the rapid growth of Internet of Things (IoT) based models, and the lack amount of data makes cloud computing resources insufficient. Hence, edge computing-based techniques are becoming more popular in present research domains that makes data storage, and processing effective at the network edges. There are several advanced features like parallel processing and data perception are available in edge computing. Still, there are some challenges in providing privacy and data security over networks. To solve the security issues in Edge Computing, Hash-based Message Authentication Code (HMAC) algorithm is used to provide solutions for preserving data from various attacks that happens with the distributed network nature. This paper proposed a Trust Model for Secure Data Sharing (TM-SDS) with HMAC algorithm. Here, data security is ensured with local and global trust levels with the centralized processing of cloud and by conserving resources effectively. Further, the proposed model achieved 84.25% of packet delivery ratio which is better compared to existing models in the resulting phase. The data packets are securely transmitted between entities in the proposed model and results showed that proposed TM-SDS model outperforms the existing models in an efficient manner.
