ATT&CK Technique Opportunity Space AD Technique Use Case
T1589 - Gather Victim Identity Information There is an opportunity to introduce decoy information, users, systems, etc. to influence an adversary's future actions. DTE0010 - Decoy Account A defender can create decoy user accounts which are used to make a decoy system or network look more realistic.

T1594 - Search Victim-Owned Websites There is an opportunity to discover who or what is being targeting by an adversary. DTE0015 - Decoy Persona A defender can seed information about the decoy persona's personal accounts on systems to see if the adversary collects and uses that information in future activity.
T1594 - Search Victim-Owned Websites There is an opportunity to introduce data to an adversary to influence their future behaviors. DTE0011 - Decoy Content A defender can utilize decoy files and directories to provide content that could be used by the adversary.
T1595 - Active Scanning There is an opportunity to introduce services in a decoy network to determine if an adversary notices and tries to learn more about them. DTE0016 - Decoy Process A defender can deploy a diverse set of decoy systems to impact an adversary's level of effort during recon activity.

T1596 - Search Open Technical Databases There is an opportunity to discover who or what is being targeting by an adversary. DTE0015 - Decoy Persona A defender can use a decoy persona to engage with online communities or to purchase/download information about their organization and review for exposure.
T1596 - Search Open Technical Databases There is an opportunity to introduce data to an adversary to influence their future behaviors. DTE0011 - Decoy Content A defender can insert decoy content into external sources or resources that adversaries may leverage for intelligence gathering.
