A honey pot is a security resource whose value lies in being probed, attacked, or compromised. Honey pots are different in that they aren't limited to solving a single, specific problem. Instead, honey pots are a highly flexible tool that can be applied to a variety of different situations. The purpose of honey pots is to provide security from intruders by deceiving and trapping them through honey pots and develop alert detection system. The honey pots are located behind the firewall. These are the virtual ports and environment acting as real ones in the network.
