Honeynet Project

The Honeynet Project is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to computer security research and information sharing.

The Honeynet Project is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to computer security research and information sharing. The group developed the first operational honeynet (a network set up with intentional vulnerabilities for the purpose of attracting attackers) and actively promotes the deployment of further honeynets. According to its Web site, The Honeynet Project's purpose is to: raise general awareness about threats and vulnerabilities, share information about attackers with the security community, and to share technology and methods with organizations that want to develop similar security research.

Since its formation in 1999, The Honeynet Project has grown to include 30 members of the security community from Canada, Israel, Netherlands, Germany, Australia, and United States.
