Honeypots have been proposed to act as traps for malicious attackers. However, because of their deployment at fixed (thus detectable) locations and on machines other than the ones they are supposed to protect, honeypots can be avoided by sophisticated attacks. We propose roaming honeypots, a mechanism that allows the locations of honeypots to be unpredictable, continuously changing, and disguised within a server pool. A (continuously changing) subset of the servers is active and providing… CONTINUE READING
