Engineers use game theory to quantify threats of cyberattacks on power grid

By Mike Krapfl, Iowa State University News Service

Iowa State’s Manimaran Govindarasu and Sourabh Bhattacharya are turning to game theory to help quantify threats of cyberattacks on the power grid. They’re also developing cybersecurity tools that could help protect the grid and could be adapted to other cyber-physical infrastructure such as oil, natural gas and transportation systems. Their research is supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
