virtual honeypot

A virtual honeypot is a simulated network used to lure intruders to study their attack patterns.

The simulated networks are replicas of real networks and are used exclusively to analyze vulnerabilities through which attackers attack networks. The virtual honeypots can be implemented in a wide variety of network configurations on virtual machines and replicate various vulnerabilities.

Since the attacker behavior to the virtual honeypots does not differ in any way from real honeypots, security experts can gain insights from the attack patterns for improving the security of real networks.
