Presentation Title: Honeypots: Today and Tomorrow.
Presentation Abstract:

Honeypots are a powerful and widely used but misunderstood technology. Almost everyone has benefited from honeypot use, but few may realize it. We will address this by explaining what honeypots are, their value, and a brief history. We will then focus on the state of honeypot technology today, who is using them, and how they are being used. We will provide numerous examples of different honeypot technologies either released or currently under development. In addition, we will give examples of how many different organizations are using these technologies, and the value they are providing. Finally, by looking at the evolution and use of honeypots over the past 10 years, we will cover the future of honeypots, new technologies, and how they will most likely be used.
