Achieving network system security is one of the most popular and fastest Information Technologies in organizations. Tools for network security deal with the capture, recording and analysis of network events in order to discover evidential information about the source of security attacks. Advanced decoy based technology called Honeypot has a huge potential for the security community and can achieve several goals of other security technologies. This paper discusses about the honeypot technology with its classification based on various factors. Paper also throws light on some new types of honeypots with recently proposed models based on it. At last this paper provides comparative study with other network security tools.
