Abstract: An adversary land force that invades sovereign territory should be shaped and delayed using coordinated and synchronised deceptions, working in concert with other obstacles as part of a defence-in-depth strategy. There should be no difference in this approach to the conduct of defensive operations in cyberspace. While there is academic literature on the benefits of employing cyber deception, there is no clear policy or process for how this capability could be leveraged at the tactical level within the Australian or US military. This paper describes a set of responsibilities for each of the information operations, intelligence, and communications planners within a tactical headquarters in order to deliver a coordinated cyber deception capability.
