AI game theory tool to strengthen military cyber defense

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. Charles River Analytics Inc., developer of intelligent systems solutions, has received additional funding from the U.S. Air Force to build a Game-Theoretic Reasoning and Analysis of Vulnerability (GRAVITY) tool.

GRAVITY analyzes vulnerabilities and executes rich models of behaviors to reason about systems in a game-theoretic manner.

Company officials claim that with GRAVITY, tools are being developed to analyze and respond to threats that exist in the gray area between peace and conflict within the military's embedded systems and networked technologies.

Charles River Analytics says that the GRAVITY tool includes a game-theoretic engine that takes stakeholder and system models as inputs and computes possible vulnerabilities, adversary strategies, and defensive counterstrategies. This modeling enables analysts to identify, visualize, and prioritize vulnerabilities.
