For fictional spies, see Spy fiction‎.

Spies or secrect agents are individuals who obtain information that is considered secret or confidential without the permission of the holder of the information.

It is a subset of intelligence gathering - which otherwise may be conducted from public sources and using perfectly legal and ethical means.
