    Data Collection

    Data Control and Data Capture are two requirements for Honeynet technologies. Any time an organization deploys a Honeynet, it is critical to ensure that these standards are met. Data Collection is different in that  it is optional. Data Collection is the aggregation of data from multiple Honeynets to a centralized point. Its purpose is to exponentially increase the value of information collected. Most organizations deploy only a single Honeynet, so Data Collection does not apply. However, some organizations deploy multiple Honeynets. In these cases, there needs to be a standard for Data Collection. 

    When part of a distributed environment, each Honeynet is assigned a unique identifier. Data sent by each Honeynet to a central location is tagged with the unique identifier. This data is then forwarded by each Honeynet to the single data collection point.
