In this talk, we are drawing on recent concepts from adversarial risk analysis, and providing a novel approach to the adversarial hypothesis testing (AHT) problem. We assume there is an agent (whom we call Defender) which needs to ascertain which of several hypothesis holds, based on observations from a source that may be perturbed by another agent, which we shall designate as Attacker. The Attacker aims at distorting the relevant data process to confound the decision maker and attain a certain utility. We provide an adversarial risk analysis approach to this problem and illustrate its usage in a batch acceptance context.
