With the development of ubiquitous computing technology, users are using mobile devices which are for producing and accessing information. Due to the limited computing capability and storage, however, mobile cloud computing technology are emerging research issues in the architecture, design, and implementation. This paper proposes the trust management approach by analyzing user behavioral patterns for reliable mobile cloud computing. For this, we suggest a method to quantify a one-dimensional trusting relation based on the analysis of telephone call data from mobile devices. After that, we integrate inter-user trust relationship in mobile cloud environment. As a result, trustworthiness of data in data production, management, overall application, is enhanced.
