Honeypot

In computer security, a honeypot is a program or a server voluntarily made vulnerable in order to attract and lure hackers. The attackers who think they are targeting a real resource behave “normally”, using their attack techniques and tools against this lure site, which allow the defenders to observe and monitor their activities, analyze their attacking methods, learn and prepare the adequate defenses for the real resources. There are several kinds of honeypots, some used for research purposes only while others are actively acting as defenses for the real sites.
