Abstract

Evaluation of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) for performance evaluation is a popular research area and a wealth of literature exists in this area. Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks are recognized as one of the most serious threats due to the resources constrained property in WSN. The Zigbee model provided in OPNET 16 is suitable for modelling WSNs. This paper presents an evaluation of the impact of DoS attacks on the performances of Wireless Sensor Networks by using the OPNET modeller. Numerical results, discussions and comparisons are provided for various simulation scenarios. The results can be of great help for optimisation studies in WSN environments under DoS attacks as well as understanding the severity and critical nodes within the WSN. The effects of DoS attacks on the performance of WSNs are considered to critically analyse these issues.
