In this paper, the authors present the Trust Level Routing (TLR) protocol, an extension of the Optimized Energy-Delay Routing (OEDR) protocol, focusing on the integrity, reliability and survivability of the wireless network. TLR is similar to OEDR in that they both are link state routing proto-cols that run in a proactive mode and adopt the concept of Multi-Point Relay (MPR) nodes. However, TLR aims at incorporating trust levels into routing by frequently changing the MPR nodes as well as authenticating the source node and contents of control packets.
