Implementation of Honey Pots for Dynamic Networks with Adaptability

N. Muni Sankar, E. Prakash Babu .


Since honey pots first appeared as an advanced network security concept they suffer from poor deployment and maintenance strategies. State-of-the-Art deployment is a manual process in which the honey pot needs to be configured and maintained by a network administrator. In this paper we present a method for a dynamic honey pot configuration, deployment and maintenance strategy based on machine learning techniques. Our method features an identification mechanism for machines and devices in a network. These entities are analyzed and clustered. Based on the clusters, honey pots are intelligently deployed in the network. The proposed method needs no configuration and maintenance and is therefore a major advantage for the honey pot technology in modern network security.
