This paper deals with a quantized feedback stabilization problem of nonlinear networked control systems via linearization. In particular, we study circumstances where the communication channel is interrupted by Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks and its data rate is limited. We employ a deterministic DoS attack model which constraints the amount of attacks only by their frequency and duration, allowing us to capture a large class of potential attacks. To achieve asymptotic stabilization, we propose a resilient dynamic quantizer in the sense that it does not saturate in the presence of packet losses caused by DoS attacks. A sufficient condition for stability is derived by restricting the average frequency and duration of attacks. Since our result only guarantees local stability, we explicitly investigate an estimate of the region of attraction, which may be reduced by attacks. A simulation example is presented for demonstration of our results.
