Capturing methods This lesson discusses capturing methods. Capturing methods are ways of detecting and analyzing suspicious activity. Two capturing methods are honey pots and honey nets. A honey pot is an intentionally vulnerable machine in order to lure an attacker and try to goad them into attacking that machine. A honeypot is useful if the prospective attacker does not figure out it is a honeypot. A honey net is an entire network of honey pots. Honey pots are more intricate as well as more convincing at looking at a large enterprise for a would-be attacker.
