Understanding the Application of Deception in Network Security

ABSTRACT

Deception techniques are often employed as part of a proactive and preventative measure of security. However, its application in security has seldom been expressed with a defining explanation of the actual deception. This paper will present a discourse on the existence of deceptions in nature to construct a model that has application to network deceptions. A model of deception will be developed with the intention of applying the delineated actions of deceit, deception, and deceiving to a wireless honeypot. In a future experiment, a research goal will be to establish associations between deceptions deployed and the attainment of network defense goals through implementation of the model of deception.
