Part of the Lecture Notes on Data Engineering and Communications Technologies book series (LNDECT,volume 31)


The paper with the help of reinforcement learning techniques and its method helps to find the best techniques that can be used in cyber security to help defender protect the data against the attackers. The techniques have been used in a cyber security game and resulted in a game of an unfriendly consecutive decision making problem played between agents i.e. an attacker and a defender.
