A wireless sensor networks encompasses battery powered sensor nodes with extremely limited processing capabilities. One of the major challenges in WSN is to overcome the attacks like Sinkhole, Wormhole and Sybil, Dos attacks, Selective forwarding etc. which reduces the performance of the network, since the Cryptographic techniques are not much effective in solving this problem. So in order to protect wireless sensor networks from attacks and to perform improvement in some of the aspects we have implemented a low overhead trust aware routing with energy efficient network protocol. This protocol is designed by incorporating the trust aware routing frame work with adaptive periodic threshold sensitive energy efficient network protocol. By minimizing the attacks, the network provides a better QOS with trustworthy and energy efficient route which leads to increase the network life time.
