    IARPA exploring deceptive cyber defenses
    By Aaron Boyd 2:16 p.m. EDT June 7, 2016

    Intelligence work is often as much about gathering information as it is about disseminating misinformation. To that end, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is looking for innovative solutions around deceptive cyber defenses.

    In a request for information issued June 6, IARPA contracting officers put out the call to “identify existing capabilities and emerging methods” for protecting data and systems by confusing and otherwise deceiving the adversary prior to and during a cyberattack.

    Just another layer on the cake that is the US Military cyber build-up. No complaints here.

    I guess they are talking about creating advanced Honey Pots and Honey Nets. These are essentially fake machines and networks used to lure hackers away from your really production environemnt, basically you get them to waste time in your fake network while you learn their methods and techniques. You also get a good laugh watching them waste their time on fake things. :p
