Honeypot is a security device the value of which lies mainly in discovering and inspecting, being attacked and being at risk. Most of the present honeypots are configured and installed on the network statically. In some cases, considerations have been made on dynamic configuration of honeypots at the time of installation. However, no study has been carried out on how to instantaneously change the configuration of honeypots based upon the analysis of the collected events from various network elements including routers, firewalls, spam identifiers and honeypots.
