The dependability of trust system and resource efficiency are the most fundamental requirements for any Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). However, the existing trust systems developed for WSNs are lacking in satisfying these requirements because of their low dependability and high overhead. In this paper, the authors have proposed a 'Dependable Trust System' (DTS) for WSNs, which employ clustering algorithms. First, a dependable trust, decision-making scheme is proposed based on the nodes identity in the clustered WSNs, which is suitable for WSNs because it results in energy saving.
