Defeating honeypots: system issues, part 2
This paper will explain how an attacker typically proceeds in order to attack a honeypot for fun and profit. In part one we compared honeypots to steganography and then looked at three common techniques for virtualizing honeypots.
Now, in the second and final part of this series we discuss the detection of Sebek, the primary data capture tool for honeypot researchers. Then we'll look at other techniques available for detecting honeypots, such as x86-specific ones and time based analysis.
