Honeypots – decoy systems used for learning cyber attackers’ capabilities and potential objectives – can be very useful to organizations, businesses, and individuals.
In this podcast recorded at the Hack in the Box conference recently held in Amsterdam, Pedram Hayati, the founder of Smart Honeypot, talks about the most effective use cases for honeypots.
But, he notes, publicly known honeypot systems are not the way to go, as attackers will easily spot them.
While developing his own custom honeypot intelligence system, he pinpointed three principles that are essential to making an effective honeypot. He explains these rules in this podcast, along with a few tips about honeypot deployment.
