Game theory has been used to model several areas of information security like network security, intrusion detection, information warfare and security investment. The authors first survey the game theoretical approaches in these areas of information security. They then explore the role of game theory in modeling an area of information security - the strategic interaction between malware writers and antimalware experts. They explore the modeling space for realistic modeling of the game, the players involved and their strategies in malware antimalware games. They also formalize their observations about modeling of action sets.
