Cyber decoys provide a means for automating, to a degree, counterintelligence activities and responses to cyber attacks. Like other security mechanisms for protecting information systems, it is likely that cyber decoys will in some instances be misused. In the United States, criminal law provides us with analogies for preventing or punishing improper state use of deception, and criminal and civil law give us a range of tools to use against private actors. However, in addition to states, nongovernmental entities and individuals can employ cyber decoys. In this paper we present a principled analysis of the use of cyher decoys. We explore the absolute minima in terms of customary principles for what might be considered to be acceptable use of deception.
