Michail Tsikerdekis, Sherali Zeadally.  2014.  Online Deception in Social Media. UKnowledge - University of Kentucky.

This article talks about online deception, deception to them is considered as a deliberate act with the intent to mislead others while the recipients are not made aware or expect that such an act is taking place and that the goal of the deceiver is to transfer that false belief to the deceived ones. Understanding how online deception works through social media and future technologies remains a significant challenge. To address this challenge one needs to design social media applications with various rules and norms that our traditional physical space does not have.

Abdul Rahman.  2019.  Tricking attackers through the art of deception. Help Net Security.

In cybersecurity, deception is redundant if it cannot misdirect, confuse, and lure attackers into traps and dead-ends. It is the art of tricking attackers into overextending and exposing themselves. To deceive attackers, an organization’s security team must see things from the adversary’s perspective.

Due to the increase in use of automation and virtualization, deception technology may make inroads into healthcare. This article is about one pharmaceutical company's approach to using the deception technology.

Doron Kolton.  2018.  5 ways deception tech is disrupting cybersecurity. The Next Web.

Enterprises and their Security Operations Centers (SOCs) are under siege. Security events are being triggered from all corners of the security stack – from the firewall, endpoints, and servers, from intrusion detection systems and other security solutions.

Here are the five ways deception tech is disrupting cybersecurity:
•    Maximum accuracy with minimal human investment
•    Get personal with your business
•    Ensure a post-breach defense for any type of attack
•    Triggers threat hunting operations
•    Empowers organizations towards strategy and active defense

Dan Woods.  2018.  How Deception Technology Gives You The Upper Hand In Cybersecurity. Forbes.

Deception technology gives defenders a rare advantage against attackers by doing something that other forms of cybersecurity don’t, it provides early and accurate detection by laying a minefield of attractive decoy systems and content to trip up attackers.

Carolyn Crandall.  2016.  The ins and outs of deception for cyber security. Network World.

New deception technologies bring a heightened level of aggressiveness in addressing cyberattacks.  Dynamic deception steps in, when prevention systems fail, and provides organizations with an efficient way to continuously detect intrusions with high interaction traps, engagement servers, and luring techniques to engage attackers. It does this without requiring additional IT staff to manage the solution.

Dave Climek, Anthony Macera, Walt Tirenin.  2016.  Cyber Deception. Cyber Security and Information Systems Information Analysis Center Journal. 4(1)

Defense through deception can potentially level the cyber battlefield by altering an enemy’s perception of reality through delays and disinformation which can reveal attack methods and provide the attributions needed to identify the adversary’s strategy

Maria Korolov.  2016.  Deception technology grows and evolves. CSO Online.

Deception technologies such as honeypots are becoming increasingly popular with enterprises as the products get more flexible and the tools allow security analysts swamped with incident reports to zero in on cases of actual ongoing infiltration.  According to a report released in August by research firm Technavio, the deception technology market is growing at a compound annual growth rate of 9 percent, and is predicted to reach $1.33 billion by 2020.

Edward Amoroso.  2018.  Deception technology: Authenticity and why it matters. Help Net Security.

This article is the second in a five-part series being developed by Dr. Edward Amoroso in conjunction with the deception technology team from Attivo Networks. The article provides an overview of the central role that authenticity plays in the establishment of deception as a practical defense and cyber risk reduction measure.

The primary functional computing requirements for achieving authenticity in deployed deception can be listed as follows: Interface, Performance, Content, Access, and Behavior.

[Anonymous].  2015.  Cybersecurity 101: An Introduction to Cyber Deception Technology. Illusive Networks. 2015

Deception technology is an outside-the-box cybersecurity approach that aims to turn the current paradigm on its head – from reactionary to proactive defense.Traditional, signature-based security measures continue to fall prey to sophisticated zero-day attacks and advanced persistent threats, despite the fact that companies are spending upwards of $3 million per year on information security. It’s time for organizations to get proactive, and use deception technology to enhance the way they architect a comprehensive security strategy. The article presents 4 Things Every CISO Must Know About Deception Cybersecurity.

[Anonymous].  2017.  What is Deception Technology? Force Point.

The aim of deception technology is to prevent a cybercriminal that has managed to infiltrate a network from doing any significant damage. The technology works by generating traps or deception decoys that mimic legitimate technology assets throughout the infrastructure.
