Nucleon's Adversary Generated Threat Intelligence (AGTI) represents a cutting-edge approach to cyber threat intelligence (CTI), focusing on the data generated by adversaries themselves during attack planning and execution.
Nucleon Cyber innovative technology empowers organizations to proactively identify, assess, and respond to threats while enhancing their overall security posture.
Cyber threat intelligence (CTI) is a vital aspect of cybersecurity, involving the collection, analysis, and dissemination of information concerning potential threats to an organization's networks, systems, and data.
Security professionals across various roles, including incident response, threat hunting, and cyber intelligence, rely on CTI to bolster their security measures.
The intelligence gathering process tracks and monitors the activities of threat actors, such as nation-state actors, criminal groups, and hacktivists.
- Prioritizing relevant and timely threat information: AGTI's focus on adversary-generated data ensures organizations gain a more accurate and current understanding of the threats they face.
- Reducing false positives and negatives: Concentrating on the data generated by adversaries helps security teams better prioritize their efforts and minimize the noise associated with conventional CTI sources.
- Streamlining the intelligence lifecycle: AGTI enables organizations to automate and optimize the collection, analysis, and dissemination of threat intelligence, rendering it more usable and accessible to security professionals.
- Improving incident response and threat hunting capabilities: A deeper comprehension of the tactics, techniques, and procedures used by adversaries equips security teams to effectively respond to and hunt for threats within their environments.
AGTI distinguishes itself from traditional CTI by honing in on information generated by adversaries, providing a more accurate and actionable view of the threat landscape.
By embracing AGTI, organizations can enhance the value of traditional CTI through:

👽 Deception in History
- The Trojan Horse (c. 1184 BCE): Perhaps the most famous example of deception in history, the Trojan Horse was a cunning ploy used by the Greeks to infiltrate and conquer the city of Troy during the Trojan War. According to legend, the Greeks constructed a massive wooden horse, which they left outside the city gates as a "gift" for the Trojans. Believing the horse to be a sign of the Greeks' surrender, the Trojans brought it into their city. Little did they know, the horse was filled with Greek soldiers who emerged during the night, opening the gates and allowing their comrades to enter the city, ultimately leading to Troy's destruction.
- Hannibal's Ruse at the Battle of Lake Trasimene (217 BCE): During the Second Punic War, the Carthaginian general Hannibal employed a brilliant ruse to defeat the Romans at the Battle of Lake Trasimene. Hannibal carefully selected a battleground with a narrow strip of land between a lake and a hillside, which concealed his main force. He then sent a small contingent of troops to provoke the Romans into pursuing them. As the Romans followed, they were led into the narrow passage where Hannibal's hidden forces ambushed them, resulting in a devastating defeat for Rome.
- Operation Mincemeat (1943): In World War II, British intelligence carried out an elaborate deception plan, known as Operation Mincemeat, to mislead the Germans about the intended target of the Allied invasion of Sicily. British agents planted false documents on the body of a deceased man, who was made to look like a high-ranking British officer, and let the body wash ashore in Spain. The Germans discovered the body and the documents, which suggested that the Allies would attack Greece and Sardinia instead of Sicily. The ruse worked, diverting German forces away from Sicily and allowing the Allies to launch a successful invasion.
- The D-Day Ghost Army (1944): To ensure the success of the D-Day landings, the Allies developed an elaborate deception campaign called Operation Fortitude. This operation involved the creation of a fictitious army, complete with inflatable tanks and fake radio traffic, to make the Germans believe that the main invasion force would land at the Pas-de-Calais, rather than Normandy. The deception was so successful that even after the Normandy landings, the Germans continued to believe that the main attack would come at the Pas-de-Calais, allowing the Allies to establish a foothold in France.
The goal is to delay or disrupt the attacker's progress, giving the defenders more time to detect and respond to the attack.
One real-world example of cyber deception being used is by an army that during their operations against Terrorists used deception to gain real world intelligence.
They created fake social media profiles of attractive young women to lure terrorist militants into downloading malware on their phones.
The malware allowed the to track the militants' movements and locate their positions, leading to successful targeted strikes. 💣
🏦 The use of honeypots by financial institutions to protect against cyber attacks.
honeypot is a decoy system designed to attract attackers and divert their attention away from the real systems.
When an attacker interacts with the honeypot, the system records their actions and alerts the defenders.
The information gathered from honeypots can be used to improve the security of the real systems and prevent future attacks. (honeypots are obsolete and old, Checkout Nucleopn Polymorphic Sensors)
💉 In the healthcare industry, cyber deception is used to protect patient data.
Deceptive techniques such as fake patient records and misleading network layouts are used to trick attackers into thinking they have access to valuable information when in fact they do not.
This helps healthcare organizations prevent data breaches and protect sensitive patient information.
In the military, cyber deception is used to protect critical infrastructure such as power grids and communication networks.
False data and network traffic can be created to mislead attackers and prevent them from causing damage to the real systems.
cyber deception is a powerful technique used by organizations to protect against cyber threats. It can be used in a variety of industries and situations to mislead attackers and buy defenders more time to detect and respond to attacks. As cyber threats continue to evolve, organizations will need to increasingly rely on cyber deception to stay ahead of the attackers.
