Honeypot Turing Test

Honeypot Turing Test


There are a few aspects of using honeypots that become clear from this discussion.  First, if one uses a honeypot, be sure to avoid the default configurations of these honeypots whenever possible.  Second, attempt to design the service script behavior to match the expectations of the attacker.  For example, in the case of the IIS GET response of the honeyd script, one could return an empty dir list and randomize time stamps, byte counts, volume serial number.  More generally, one might consider an intelligent algorithm or approach to change or mutate a honeypot from a detectable back to an undetectable form.
