Abstract

Defending information systems against advanced attacks is a challenging
task; even if all the systems have been properly updated and all the
known vulnerabilities have been patched, there is still the possibility
of previously unknown zero day attack compromising the system. Honeypots
offer a more proactive tool for detecting possible attacks. What is
more, they can act as a tool for understanding attackers intentions. In
this paper, we propose a design for a diversified honeypot. By
increasing variability present in software, diversification decreases
the number of assumptions an attacker can make about the target system.
