Coping with Cyber Security Threats using Game Theory and Artificial Intelligence: Recent Advances and Challenges

This talk first gives an overview of various potential attacks on a cyber system, ranging from the physical to the application layer. We then discuss recent advances using game theory and artificial intelligence to detect and combat radio jammers, eavesdroppers, and intruders. Specifically, we will discuss different jamming strategies, its reliable detection, and countermeasures using stochastic Markov games. Latest friendly jamming techniques are then presented as effective anti-eavesdropping solutions for power- and computing-limited devices. The talk concludes with our recent results and challenges in using different deep learning architectures to detect potential cyber attacks (e.g., in mobile cloud, traffic classification, intrusion detection).


Diep N. Nguyen is a faculty member of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, University of Technology Sydney (UTS). He has 15 years of working as an engineer and educator in the areas of IT and engineering with more than 70 publications (including 2 US patents filed, 7 technical reports, and more than 60 refereed IEEE/ACM journal and conference papers, e.g., IEEE JSAC, INFOCOM, TWC,…). He got his ME and PhD from the University of California, San Diego and The University of Arizona in 2008 and 2013. Before joining UTS, he was a DECRA Research Fellow at Macquarie University, a member of technical staff at Broadcom (California), ARCON Corporation (Boston), consulting the Federal Administration of Aviation on turning detection of UAVs and aircraft, US Air Force Research Lab on anti-jamming. He has received several awards from LG Electronics, University of California, San Diego, The University of Arizona, US National Science Foundation, Australian Research Council, including nominations for the outstanding RA (2013) awards, the best paper award at the WiOpt conference (2014), Discovery Early Career Researcher award (DECRA, 2015). His work has been generously sponsored by NSF, ARC Australia, Intel, Huawei…. He has co-organized few IEEE international conferences (e.g., IEEE VTC, ISMICT, ISCIT) as TPC chairs, co-chairs, track chairs. He has served in the TPC committees of various IEEE and international annual flagship conferences, e.g., ICC, Globecom, WCNC. He is also an associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing.
