A Game Theoretical Approach to Communication Security
Source: University of California
The increased reliance on the Internet has made information and communication systems more vulnerable to security attacks. Many recent incidents demonstrate this vulnerability, such as the rapid propagation of sophisticated malwares, the fast growth of botnets, Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks against business and government websites, and attacks against the power grid system. Experts must design and implement security solutions to defend against well organized and very sophisticated adversaries such as malicious insiders, cybercriminals, cyberterrorists, industrial spies, and, in some cases, nation-state intelligence agents.
