Game Theoretic Approach to Communication Security (GameSecu)

View Current Project Information

Jean Walrand

This study is motivated by security in communications systems where data can be compromised by a "cognitive" attacker (i.e., an attacker that tries to tune its attacking strategies according to the defense line set by the system). The question in this context is how to detect such "intelligent attacks." We formulate the problem as a game between the attacker and the system, and compute the Nash Equilibria.
