An Aggregate Signature based Trust Routing (ASTR) scheme is proposed to guarantee safe data collection in WSNs. In ASTR scheme, firstly, the aggregate signature approach is used to aggregate data and keep data integrity. What is more important, a light aggregate signature based detour routing scheme is proposed to send abstract information which includes the data sending time and ID of data, nodes' ID to the sink over different paths which can verify whether the data reaches the sink safely. In addition, the trust of a path is evaluated according to the success rate of the path. The trust of paths susceptible to frequent attack will be lowered and the path with high trust will be selected for data routing to avoid data gathering through low trust path and thereby increase the success rate of data gathering. Our comprehensive performance analysis has shown that, the ASTR scheme is able to effectively ensure an increase in success rate of data transmission by 23.23%, reduce the data amount loaded by the node by 53.59%, reduce the redundant data by 41.70%.
