The use of deception is one of many defensive techniques being
explored today. In the past, defenders of systems have used
deception haphazardly, but now researchers are developing
systematic methods of deception. The cornerstone of these
methods is internal consistency: projecting a “false reality”,
or “fiction”, that the attacker is to accept as reality.
We challenge the
necessity of this cornerstone, and explore the nature and possible
uses of inconsistency in deception as a defense.
