Wireless Sensor Networks utilize large numbers of Wireless Sensor nodes to forward information from source to destination. Wireless Sensor Nodes are battery-powered devices. Energy saving is always vital to maximize the lifetime of Wireless Sensor Networks. Recently, there are many Routing Protocols have been designed and proposed for Wireless Sensor Networks to improve its performance in terms of Communication Time, Residual Energy and Energy Consumption. An Efficient HYbrid Multi-hop routiNg (HYMN) Technique was proposed recently, which was a hybrid of the two contemporary Multi-Hop Routing Techniques, namely, Flat Multi- Hop Routing Technique and Hierarchical Multi-Hop Routing Technique. It demonstrates the effective performance in terms of Network Lifetime and superior connectivity. However, from the literature survey, it is observed that this Hybrid Multi-Hop Routing Technique fails to achieve sinkhole attacks, which are the major noted attacks against this Hybrid Multi-Hop Routing Technique.  To address this issue and to secure the Wireless Sensor Networks against the above mentioned attacks, this research work is planned to enhance the Hybrid Multi-Hop Routing Technique with Trust-Aware Routing Framework, which will improve the performance of Wireless Sensor Networks in terms of trustworthy and Network Lifetime.
