    Virtual Honeynets

    Virtual Honeynets take the same concepts used in classic Honeynets and implement these concepts into a single system. This implementation has both advantages and disadvantages over clasic Honeynets. The advantages associated with deploying virtual Honeynets are reduced cost and easier management, as everything is combined on a single system. However, this simplicity comes at a cost. Virtual Honeynets limit the types of operating systems you can deploy by the hardware and virtualization software they require. In addition, virtual Honeynets carry increased risk - as an attacker could potentially break out of the virtualization software and take over the Honeynet system, bypassing Data Control and Data Capture mechanisms.
