Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The previous chapter discussed obfuscation, in which the defender’s goal is to hide valuable information within noise. Obfuscation, in other words, is a species of crypsis (Sect. 4.3 ). But in other species of deception, the defender aims to create a specific false belief. This is called mimesis. The present chapter studies static mimesis, or, honey-x, which takes its name from technologies related to honeypots, honeytokens, etc.
