  abstract =     "Recent technological improvements in wireless
                 communication and electronics have enabled the
                 development of small, low-cost wireless sensor nodes,
                 capable of monitoring everything from human health to
                 the performance of the electricity grid. A natural
                 consequence is a desire to secure systems containing
                 these nodes. Unfortunately, proving that systems are
                 secure is beyond the current state of the art, and
                 testing for security is problematic: test cases often
                 miss attacks that have never previously been seen. In
                 this paper, we use Genetic Programming (GP) to create
                 attacks against Internet of Things devices, to help
                 identify vulnerabilities before systems are attacked
                 for real. To assess the effectiveness of each attacker,
                 we used it against a wireless sensor network (WSN) with
                 publish-subscribe communications, protected by a
                 literature artificial immune intrusion detection system
                 (IDS). The GP attackers succeeded in suppressing
                 significantly more legitimate messages than a
                 hand-coded attacker, whilst decreasing the likelihood
                 of detection. As a consequence, it was possible to tune
                 the IDS, improving its performance. Whilst these
                 results are preliminary, they demonstrate GP holds
                 significant potential for improving the protection of
                 systems with large attack spaces.",
