We are witnessing a growing interest around thecost of security in terms of energy consumption. For instance, in wired networking, some proposals have been put forwardto try to balance the efficacy of intrusion detection with theneed to save energy dynamically, by changing the amount ofresources dedicated to security analysis and routing on the basisof current load. These hybrid energy-aware Routers/IntrusionPrevention Systems have the ability to combine the packet forwardingactivity with the possibility to perform packet inspectionaccording to the actual energy availability, in such a way thatallows sanitizing the traffic and save routing energy. However, while this allows early detection and discard of malicious packets, it may, on the other side, introduce additional delays in the packetdelivery. In this paper we empirically assess to which extent theaggressive packet analysis needed to achieve substantial energysavings impacts upon the delay in the packet delivery.
