We apply basic research in game theory, planning and adversarial reasoning to create abstract mathematical models of critical infrastructures (such as traffic systems, utility networks or communication infrastructures including computer networks) typically represented by a graph structure or a set of spatially distributed targets. The models are then used to design optimal protection policies with limited defensive resources, which is typically computationally expensive and requires research of novel and scalable algorithms. As the level of abstraction can be often substantial, we employ large-scale multi-agent simulations to assess robustness of the proposed solution in rich environments which capture additional properties of the physical world.
