AI Creates False Documents That Fake Out Hackers

The algorithm, called Word Embedding–based Fake Online Repository Generation Engine (WE-FORGE), generates decoys of patents under development. “The bad guy has almost a year to decamp with all our documents, all our intellectual property,” he says. Counterfeit documents produced by WE-FORGE could also act as hidden “trip wires,” says Rachel Tobac, CEO of cybersecurity consultancy SocialProof Security. Still, both he and Tobac think this research will attract commercial interest. “If this ... creates believable decoys without releasing sensitive details within those decoys, then I think you’ve got a huge win there.”
