Both these strategies can be useful for defense in cyberspace, because the first can scare away cyber attacks and the second can aid honeypots, systems designed to better learn about attack methods. Deception is particularly suited to military cyber defense as part of its “defense in depth” doctrine (Tirenin and Faatz 1999). Chinese military thinking has long given high importance to deception (Yoshihara 2005). Deception is also essential for intelligence gathering about an adversary.

1 The Role of Deception in Military Activities Deception in warfare can serve several purposes (Whaley 2007). First, it can cause an adversary to misjudge our strength or resources in planning for or responding to actions. If we make an adversary think we are stronger than we really are, we may discourage them from attacking or counterattacking us for fear they may lose. We can do this by exhibiting false clues to a stronger potential than we really have. Alternatively, if we make an adversary think we are weaker than we really are, we may be able to encourage them to attack or counterattack and then either learn something about their methods or deal them a crushing and justified counterattack.
