About Pseudonyms

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.
