Establishing a fake online identity to misdirect, deceive, and or interact with adversaries.
How it works
A false online identity is created for the purposes of interacting with adversaries in a direct or indirect manner. This includes the associated email addresses, social media accounts, and other online communication profiles.
- Include phone numbers and online social profiles as well as automatically or manually responding to contact made to the persona to improve realism.
- Continuous updating and managing the decoy personas and online activity streams to ensure personas do not become stale and outdated.
