Future communications and data networks are expected to be largely cognitive self-organizing networks (CSON). Such networks will have the essential property of cognitive self-organization, which can be achieved using machine learning techniques (e.g., deep learning). Despite the potential of these techniques, these techniques in their current form are vulnerable to adversarial attacks that can cause cascaded damages with detrimental consequences for the whole network. In this paper, we explore
