ABSTRACT This paper proposed beta trust model based on energy load balancing combines the recent achievements of the trust models in distributed networks, together with the characteristics of wireless sensor networks. The inter-node trust relation is established after an overall evaluation of node trust value based on the monitor results of the node packets forwarding behavior conducted by inter-node collaboration. Due to the node energy limitation in wireless sensor networks, energy load balancing mechanism is applied to prolong the node survival time. And the redundant routing protocol involves the presented trust model to develop the novel trust routing protocol of beta trust model based on energy load balancing. Simulation performance demonstrates that the beta trust model based on energy load balancing outperforms current schemes in energy consumption.
