  abstract =     "Our cybersecurity tool, RIVALS, develops adaptive
                 network defence strategies by modelling adversarial
                 network attack and defense behaviour in peer-to-peer
                 networks via coevolutionary algorithms. Currently
                 RIVALS DOS attacks are modestly modeled by the
                 selection of a node that is completely disabled for a
                 resource-limited duration. Defenders have three
                 different network routing protocols. Attack or mission
                 completion and resource cost metrics serve as attacker
                 and defender objectives. This work also includes a
                 description of RIVALS suite of coevolutionary
                 algorithms that explore archiving as a means of
                 maintaining progressive exploration and support the
                 evaluation of different solution concepts. To compare
                 and contrast the effectiveness of each algorithm, we
                 execute simulations on 3 different network topologies.
                 Our experiments show that it is possible to forgo the
                 assurance of monotonically increasing results and still
                 retain high quality results.",
