    Welcome to the forum, Hadi Halim.

    A search here, at OneLook: General dictionary sites will tell you that 'trustness' does not appear in any of the dictionaries, though 'trustiness' does. Further searching will show you that trust is itself a noun.
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.

    Welcome to the forum. Please see the corrections I have made to your post. Please remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a question mark.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
