CIA Pseudonyms & Aliases

CIA documents often feature false names of the following main types:

   • pseudonyms: false names used in internal reports and documents
   • aliases: assumed names used in public, sometimes as "covers"

Like the abundant use of "cryptonyms" for people, organizations, and projects, the widespread use of false names in CIA documents can hinder understanding of these records. In many cases, the corresponding true identity is revealed or can be inferred from the public records themselves.

This Pseudonyms & Aliases project gathers those identifications from documents available on this website, providing a handy look-up chart. Source references are provided to corroborate the provided definitions. Bookmark this page for use as you read CIA documents.

To understand cryptonyms, pseudonyms, and aliases, see this help page: Decoding False Names in CIA Documents. If you have information about one of these entries, or one not listed here, contact us at info@maryferrell.org.
