Abstract: Trust-based leach variant routing protocols mixed with ant colony optimization techniques can be one of the good choices to design a trustable and secured wsn. Many optimization techniques like Genetic Algorithms, Fuzzy Logics, Swarm Intelligence have been utilized by researchers to develop efficient routing protocols for wsns.if we discuss about Swarm Intelligence, then Lots of research work has been done already and also lots others are going to be done mainly on 2 is bee-colony-optimization(BCO) and another one is ant-colony- optimization(ACO) .This paper proposes ACOTRUST, a trustable leach-based routing method using ACO algorithm to optimize routing with maintaining other parameters like distribution of energy dissipation evenly throughout the sensors, energy efficiency, throughput, security of wsns.
