What are the types of honeypots?

Honeypot is classified into two categories:

  1. Production honeypot
  2. Research honeypot.
  1. Production honeypot: It is designed to capture real information for the administrator to access vulnerabilities. They are generally placed inside production networks to increase their security.

  2. Research Honeypot: It is used by educational institutions and organizations for the sole purpose of researching the motives and tactics of the back-hat community for targeting different networks.
