The authors provide thirteen “core cases” of obfuscation in practice. These cases clarify what obfuscation does in particular scenarios across a variety of technologies and social, legal, and political contexts. While the cases are diverse -- including radar chaff, “false tells” in poker, and collective identity drawn from popular culture and historical applications -- the focus is on digital data and online activism illustrated through instances, such as concealing activity on social networks, protecting search queries, and providing aid to activists involved in the release of Nelson Mandela.
