Abstract

Game theory has been receiving immense concern to deal with attacks in wireless ad hoc networks, which are widely employed in a large range of applications but vulnerable to various attacks. Previous works provided readers with comprehensive understanding of game theoretic solutions on cyber security problems. However, they neglect the relationship between attack characteristics and the corresponding game features. In this paper, we study the application of game theory on attacks in wireless ad hoc networks. Specifically, we present a classification which associates attack characteristics with types of game players and then examine the relationship between attack scenarios and types of corresponding game models. By illustrating the different players and game types in a variety of game theoretic approaches, we provide a comprehensive view on game based solutions to attacks in wireless ad hoc networks.
