 Honeypots: Simple, Cost-Effective Detection

Security Focus tells us more about Honeypots.

"As you are about to find out, the answer is very simple: honeypots are a simple, cost-effective way to detect illicit, unauthorized activity. This article will examine the role of detection in the overall security strategy. It will then discuss some traditional detection approaches as well as some problems inherent in those approaches. It will then show how honeypots effectively overcome those problems, thereby strengthening the detection component of the security strategy."
