For centuries, militaries throughout the world have used deception techniques to gain competitive advantage in warfare. This thesis evaluated the effect of deception with a particular commercial product within cyberspace. It measured the effect of its deception on the ability of attackers to achieve their objectives. The results of our experiments showed the deception could slow cyber-attacks. These results also suggested several future research opportunities and implementation strategies for deception in cyberspace operations.
