Definition of the day: Honeypots

“Honeypots” in network security is a computer system which entices hackers to attack it.  All ports are kept open on the  system and the computer acts normally with its services(but in reality, it is isolated and monitored) The main idea behind setting up “honeypots” is used to study the motives of malicious individuals and track their actions.

 

 

It must be noted that none of the production systems are connected to the “honeypot” system and no vital business information is lost during the “honeypot” project.
