This survey of denial-of-service threats and countermeasures considers wireless sensor platforms' resource constraints as well as the denial-of-sleep attack, which targets a battery-powered device's energy supply. Here, we update the survey of denial-of-service threats with current threats and countermeasures.In particular, we more thoroughly explore the denial-of-sleep attack, which specifically targets the energy-efficient protocols unique to sensor network deployments. We start by exploring such networks' characteristics and then discuss how researchers have adapted general security mechanisms to account for these characteristics.
