Heterogeneous wireless sensor networks (HWSNET) are more suitable for real life applications as compared to the homogeneous counterpart. Security of HWSNET becomes a very important issue with the rapid development of HWSNET. Intrusion detection system is one of the major and efficient defensive methods against attacks in HWSNET. Because of different constraints of sensor networks, security solutions have to be designed with limited usage of computation and resources. A particularly devastating attack is the sleep deprivation attack. Here a malicious node forces legitimate nodes to waste their energy by resisting the sensor nodes from going into low power sleep mode. The target of this attack is to maximize the power consumption of the affected node, thereby decreasing its battery life. Existing works on sleep deprivation attack have mainly focused on mitigation using MAC based protocols, such as S-MAC (sensor MAC), T-MAC (timeout MAC), B-MAC (Berkley MAC), G-MAC ( gateway MAC). In this article, a brief review of some of the recent intrusion detection systems in wireless sensor network environment is presented. Finally, a framework of cluster based layered countermeasure for Insomnia Detection has been proposed for heterogeneous wireless sensor network (HWSNET) to efficiently detect sleep deprivation attack. Simulation results on MATLAB exhibit the effectiveness of the proposed model.
