Re: Poking the bear
It's definitely not for every organization, but deception-based technology is gradually becoming more palatable and strategic for orgs that have the resources to handle it.

Poking the bear
I do have some hesitations with this method however and honeypots/nets in general. Network scraping/memory scraping is common practice and more often than not a company knows or should know whether they are equipped to combat it or if they are vulnerable. Once the attacker discovers the credentials rendered are phony it might sway them to target the ip space they were scrapping more heavily then before. Mind you, unless targeting, they may have been doing this to a myriad of ip spaces trying to get lucky.

Interesting
I did not expect the expansion of honeypot principles into a token based concept. It would be interesting to identify by what means your network is being scraped for those credentials when there is less of a risk because they are phony.
