Honeypotting With Solaris
Attack is the best defence, it is said. This paper is about honeypots, which are good counter-measure to detect intrusions and abnormal activity in the Internet of these days. Since security in honeypots is a big concern, this paper is about Solaris 10 operating system, which claims to be the most secure OS in the world. This paper focuses on figuring out how Solaris 10 works when used to deploy a virtual honeynet. Solaris has very good features for server consolidation, which allows multiple workloads to run on the same system, has become very important way to improve the utilization and reduce costs in the increasingly growing data center needs. This paper introduces technologies that Solaris 10 provides for virtualization and system observation.
