Network survivability is the ability of a network keeping connected under failures and attacks, which is a fundamental issue to the design and performance evaluation of wireless ad hoc networks. Ad-hoc low power wireless networks are in research in both sensing and pervasive computing. The proposed method discusses about resource depletion attacks at the routing protocol layer, which drains battery power. The motivation of a large portion of research efforts has been to maximize the lifetime of the network, where network lifetime is typically measured from the instant of deployment to the point when one of the nodes has expanded its limited power source and becomes in-operational - commonly referred as first node failure.
