Abstract

E-commerce relies upon two key elements authenticity and the integrity of data. To function effectively, an electronic based system must trust that the users on it are who they should be, and that the data has not been corrupted. The digital medium has the benefit of flexibility of change, but this very characteristic is the one that makes it vulnerable to those who wish to deceive. This paper examines types of deception and how they relate to the digital world.
