This year’s report also features an additional research tool: Cloud Honeypots. Using honeypots deployed in public cloud infrastructures around the world, Alert Logic researchers have gained valuable insights related to attack trends in the cloud.
A honeypot is a decoy system configured to be intentionally vulnerable, deployed to gather information about attackers and their exploitation methods. While honeypots are not typically the target of highly sophisticated attacks, they are subject to many undefined attacks, and provide a window into the types of threats being launched against the cloud.
