Projects / Bait and Switch Honeypot System

Bait and Switch Honeypot System

The Bait and Switch Honeypot System combines the snort Intrusion Detection System (IDS) with honeypot technology to create a system that reacts to hostile intrusion attempts by marking and then redirecting all "bad" traffic to a honeypot that partially mirrors your production system. Once switched, the would-be hacker is unknowingly attacking your honeypot instead of the real data, while your clients and/or users are still safely accessing the real system. Life goes on, your data is safe, and you get to learn about the bad guy as an added benefit. It works with Snort 1.9.0, 1.9.1, and 2.0.2.
