Honeypots are a relatively new way to deal with threats but in a very peculiar way; they are not a solution themselves as they don't solve a problem, rather than that Honeypots are flexible tools that can be used to collect information about the way an attack can affect the network. To achieve this Honeypots should be an easy target for attackers, and that's the reason why certain precautions must be taken when using one of these tools to avoid a problem bigger than a solution. In this paper it's going to be tested the effect that the implementation of a honeypot or honeynet can have in a production network under two security scenarios: a protected network vs an unprotected one.
