Honeypots are cyber systems and processes set up to appear operational to collect information on threat behavior and vectors. Real or simulated systems and processes are configured to appear as if they are real systems, often with vulnerabilities. Internal honeypots can provide high-value warnings of internal malware or attackers. While an internet-facing honeypot will be frequently compromised, internal honeypots should never become compromised. If this happens, it usually means that other preventive and detective controls, such as firewalls and IDSs, have failed.
