Cybercrime is big business, with cybercrime costs expected to grow by 15% per year over the next 5 years, reaching $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025. This is up from $3 trillion back in 2015. There are many tools to help detect and deter criminals from gaining access to your IT environment, including the “honeypot,” which is a virtual trap to lure attackers. (Though if you ever want to catch Winnie the Pooh red-handed, a physical honeypot is the way to go.)
When discussing cybersecurity, a honeypot is a system, device, or software that is intentionally compromised to expose opportunities for attackers so that they can be studied to improve security policies. And as our software architecture becomes more complex, threat-research has become more difficult, especially within containerization. To that end, Helix Honeypot was created to help solve some of the pain-points when doing threat-research around public-facing Kubernetes deployments.
Our team did a very comprehensive breakdown of Helix Honeypot, which you can check out here - 30 Days with Helix Honeypot
Have any of y’all worked with Helix Honeypot before?
