This thesis explores strategic-level deception in the context of network-centric information operations. Advances in information technology and the global connectedness of communications networks have created new opportunities and challenges for conducting strategic and operational level deception campaigns with significant utilization of cyberspace. Planning and executing concurrent strategic-level deceptions among distributed participants and against multiple targets requires speed, flexibility, and situational awareness. This thesis begins with a historical account of twentieth century use of strategic-level deception, followed by a definition of network deception, considerations for achieving network based deception, and our proposed model of command structure for network-centric planning and execution of deception campaigns in the twenty-first century.
