These days, different types of Network Attacks cum Threats are causing massive damage to the Internet Community day by day. In order to defend from attacks, people are trying to protect their network by using Traditional Security mechanisms like Firewall, Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System (IDS/IPS) etc. Among all the security parameters Honeypot is a versatile tool for a security administrator and these tools are developed with the motive to be attacked or interacted with to gain more information about the attackers, their motives and tools used by them to attack the network. In this paper a thorough study has been undertaken to describe the benefits of Low-Interaction Honeypot and High-Interaction Honeypot along with comparisons between them.
