My research addresses the problem faced by a defender who must screen objects for potential threats that are coming into a secure area. The particular domain of interest for my work is the protection of cyber networks from intrusions given the presence of a strategic adversary. My thesis work allows fora defender to use game-theoretical methods that randomize her protection strategy and introduces uncertainty to the adversary that makes it more difficult to attack the defender’s network successfully.
