What is a honeypot?

I asked a tech what a honeypot is and I got immediately confused. As we talked I got the scoop on it for you all.

Example is if you have 2 systems networked together and u have this program on your system, it will put up false fronts of more systems that really are not there. The reason behind this is to capture hackers IP?s and stop them dead in their tracks.

A hacker will think he is in your system to get the information he wants and he really is not in your system but in a false one and now you have his IP info and send it to security and he is a goner.

This is a good program to have if you have a business you want to protect all the information in you system. Worth having, in my opinon.

Good luck.
