ABSTRACT

One of the most effective measurements of intercommunication and collaboration in wireless sensor networks which leads to provide security is Trust Management. Most popular decision making systems used to collaborate with a stranger are tackled by two different existing trust management systems: one is a policy-based approach which verifies the decision built on logical properties and functionalities; the other approach is reputation-based approach which verifies the decision built on physical properties and functionalities of WSN. Proofless authorization, unavailability, vagueness and more complexity cause decreased detection rate and spoil the efficacy of the WSN in existing approaches. Some of the integrated approaches are utilized to improve the significance of the trust management strategies. In this paper, a Compact Trust Computation and Management (CTCM) approach is proposed to overcome the limitations of the existing approaches, also it provides a strong objective security with the calculability and the available security implications. Finally, the CTCM approach incorporates the optimum trust score for logical and physical investigation of the network resources. The simulation based experiment results show that the CTCM compact trust computation and management approach can provide an efficient defending mechanism against derailing attacks in WSN.
