Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of internet connected devices that generates huge amount of data every day. The usage of IoT devices such as smart wearables, smart phones, smart cities are increasing in the linear scale. Health care is one of the primary applications today that uses IoT devices. Data generated in this application may need computation, storage and data analytics operations which requires resourceful environment for remote patient health monitoring. The data related with

Fog computing is an emergent architecture for providing computation, storage, control and network services within user's proximity. To handle private data, the processing elements should be trustable entities in Fog environment. In this paper we propose novel Trust Enforced computation ofFLoading technique for trust worthy applications using fOg computiNg (TEFLON). The proposed system comprises of two algorithms namely optimal service offloader and trust assessment for addressing security and trust issues with reduced response time. And the simulation results show that proposed TEFLON framework improves success rate of fog collaboration with reduced average latency for delay sensitive applications and ensures trust for trustworthy applications.
