Abstract

This paper will discuss honeypots and their use and effectiveness as a security measure in an IT environment. It will specifically discuss various methods of honeypot implementations. Furthermore, this paper will look into the weaknesses within a honeypot system. This will include attacks against honeypots and methods a hacker may use to detect the presence of a honeypot or the fact that he/she is actually inside one. Finally this paper will discuss methods of further securing honeypots and ways the community is dealing with security flaws as they are identified
