This work will design interfaces to industrial control systems that use deception to impede cyberattacks and other malicious activity.  Techniques to be explored include use of bait files with links to honeypots, false error messages, creation of information overload in an attacker, and giving a false sense of control of processes.  The work will include design of simulated processes and testing the interface with human subjects.
