A honeypot is a system designed to attract attackers and counteract attempts at the illegal use of information systems. Honeypots are considered an effective method to track hacker behaviour and add complexity to a network.
Honeypots are designed to intentionally engage and deceive hackers and identify malicious activities performed over the internet. They can be used to determine how systems are attacked and can play a useful role in overall system defence.
There are different kinds of honeypots. For example, having many different hosts or using a honeynet, which is used to monitor large networks when a single honeypot would not be adequate.
