A Noble Indirect Trust Based Link State Routing Scheme Using a Robust Route Trust Method for Wireless Sensor Networks
Integration of trust in routing mechanisms already prevalent in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has become an interesting research area of late. Several methods exist for the assignment of trust to the nodes present in a WSN. However the real challenge lies in proper integration of this trust to an existing routing protocol for the synthesis of a trust-aware routing algorithm. In this paper, the authors try to take the help of Geometrical Mean based indirect trust evaluation mechanism for calculation of trust of individual nodes and thereby use the calculated trusts for determination of the different Route Trusts (RTs).
