What term is used to describe a network of decoy systems used to attract and study the activity of intruders?
Correct Answer: A
Honeynets are networks of decoy systems designed to attract intruders so that security analysts may study their activity. Honeypots are single systems designed for the same purpose. Darknets are unused portions of IP address space designed to detect scanning activity when a scanner attempts to access those unused addresses. Darkpots are what occur when I attempt to cook and leave a pot unattended on the stove for too long.
