The mentioned Honeypots are especially designed bait, with which the scientists of the research group headed by Prof. Max Mühlhäuser, CYSEC [at] TU Darmstadt want to attract hackers. Attacks are registered almost minutely. The scientists receive countless information about cyber attacks and work out defense strategies.
