Recently, a trust system was introduced to enhance security and cooperation between nodes in wireless sensor networks (WSN). In routing, the trust system includes or avoids nodes related to the estimated trust values in the routing function. This article introduces Enhanced Metaheuristics with Trust Aware Secure Route Selection Protocol (EMTA-SRSP) for WSN. The presented EMTA-SRSP technique majorly involves the optimal selection of routes in WSN. To accomplish this, the EMTA-SRSP technique involves the design of an oppositional Aquila optimization algorithm to choose safe routes for data communication. For the clustering process, the nodes with maximum residual energy will be considered cluster heads (CHs). In addition, the OAOA technique gets executed to choose optimal routes based on objective functions with multiple parameters such as energy, distance, and trust degree. The experimental validation of the EMTA-SRSP technique is tested, and the results exhibited a better performance of the EMTA-SRSP technique over other approaches.
