"The technical term is agent provocateur. In our network domain these bad actors are highly trained in masquerading their loyalty using the best technology practices available.

"You may also be wondering why much of the log lately has been about the hazards of unknown conflict-of-interests. It is simple. Large numbers have now been exposed because the lights have come up.

"In short, transparency is a many faceted topic. The increasing consequences to those that have counted on obscuration, misdirection and the like, occur as one becoming visible reveals another."
