Decoys have been used for a long time by humans to fool attackers. Who is copying whom ? Generally, nature has had a billion year head-start ...
i hope no one mind my little question:
what is your opinion about blake2? And does the performance it's provide punches any security holes in it? And whats about bruteforce-attacks?
just a thing I'm curios about ^^
this spider is like the wizard of oz its minature yet creates a giant decoy with puppet strings.
Similar behaviour can be observed in human politics where difficult-to-observe special interest groups create sock puppets with huge egos posing as representatives of the people.
