Denial of Sleeping is a novel type of potential attacks in wireless network. The object of the attack is a sensor node’s power supply. To make sensors inexpensive so that they can be economically deployed in large numbers, they generally have very limited battery capability. Thus, a lifetime of a sensor is degraded under Denial of Sleeping attack. In this paper a mathematical model for performance evaluation of the attack is offered. Counteracting against the intrusion is discussed.
