  abstract =     "Intrusion detection systems, which aim to protect our
                 IT infrastructure are not infallible. Attackers take
                 advantage of detector vulnerabilities and weaknesses to
                 evade detection, hence hindering the effectiveness of
                 the detectors. To do so, attackers generate evasion
                 attacks which can eliminate or minimise the detection
                 while successfully achieving the attacker's goals. This
                 work proposes an artificial arms race between an
                 automated white-hat attacker and various anomaly
                 detectors for the purpose of identifying detector
                 weaknesses. The proposed arms race aims to automate the
                 vulnerability testing of the anomaly detectors so that
                 the security experts can be more proactive in
                 eliminating detector vulnerabilities.",
