"The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) wants to stop whistleblowers before they can leak any data by enticing them with fake documents and information that will reveal their identities. In a recent paper for the DoD’s technological research arm, contractors note that they have constructed “a prototype for automatically generating and distributing believable misinformation. Wired Blog Dangeroom notes that this so called ‘Fog Computing’ project was initiated in 2010 as part of a wider operation to counter “insider threats”. In a separate paper, Salvatore Stolfo, the Columbia University computer science professor who worked on the programme, notes that another fog computing method is to set up fake Facebook and Twitter accounts and flood people’s social network feeds with disinformation. ”This is a way to create fog so that now you no longer know the truth abut a person through this artificial avatars or artificial profiles.”
