Absorption means the utilization from contacts in the jargon of the intelligence services to a person, who has interesting information (e.g. Secret carrier). The taxed away person continues to give thereby knowledge or also to material to recognize without the real intention of the taxing away and/or in the wrong acceptance that the passing on is unproblematic.
For an absorption e.g. private relations can be developed and abused later. Beyond that also "halfofficial" (journalistic) or "official" legends is suitable.
Crucially for the success of the absorption in is at least on one side - loadable bond of trust, as a substitute an absolutely plausible legend. During the absorption it concerns thus a planned breach of trust.
