Abstract:

In this paper, we show that simple, cheap and easily deployable honeypots can help to get a better understanding of the attack processes that machines in unclassified networks are facing. Acquiring this knowledge is a prerequisite for the sound design and implementation of efficient intrusion tolerant systems. We propose some in depth analyses carried out on data gathered during a 10 months period by several honeypots. We highlight the need for a well defined set up of honeypots, replicated in many diverse locations. Such an environment would enable the scientific community to answer the remaining open issues described here after.
