'Gaming Security by Obscurity' research paper written by Professor Dusko Pavlovic

Prof. Dusko PavlovicA new research paper entitled ‘Gaming Security by Obscurity’ by the Information Security Group’s Professor Dusko Pavlovic has recently been published. The paper applies game theory to the conflict between hackers and security defenders in suggesting system security can be improved by making it difficult for attackers to figure out how their mark works. For example, adding a layer of obfuscation to a software application can make it harder to reverse.
