Dynamic Hypergames for Synthesis of Deceptive Strategies with Temporal Logic Objectives [article]

Lening Li, Haoxiang Ma, Abhishek N. Kulkarni, Jie Fu
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To synthesize a deceptive strategy, we introduce a class of hypergame models that capture the interaction between the agent and its adversary given asymmetric, incomplete information.  ...  We develop the solution concept of this class of hypergames and show that the subjectively rationalizable strategy for the agent is deceptive and maximizes the probability of satisfying the task in temporal  ...  For applications to cyber-physical security, the practitioners can employ temporal logic for specifying security properties in the system and analyze defense with deception using the proposed methods.  ...
