A Survey on Honeypot Technology : Concepts, Types and Working
Keywords:Honeypot; Types of honeypots; IDS; intrusion detection/prevention system; network security
Information security is a rising concern today in this era of the internet. HoneyPots are fake computer
Systems which appears vulnerable to attack though it actually prevents access to valuable sensitive data and
administrative controls. A well designed and developed Honeypot provide data to the research community to study issues
in network security like Internet worms, Zero-day attacks, spam control, DoS attacks, etc. In this paper we present a
detailed overview on Honeypot technology.We examine different Types of Honeypots, Honeypot concepts and
approaches in order to determine how we can intend measures to enhance security using these technologies.
