In this lab, you will explore at least one IDS, IPS, or Honeypot currently offered by product vendors and cloud service providers. You will be making a security recommendation, related to the protection of a target network of your choice.
There are a few different paths you may take in this lab, so let’s address some of the distinguishing features and definitions that are out there.
IDS and IPS Overview
Note: Seek qualified legal advice before deploying any type of honeypot.
Any of the above services can be implemented on a privately managed network, or through a cloud service. The selection of one platform over another will generally determine where the specific protection occurs—on your network or in the cloud.
The reason for this lab is to give you an understanding of how special network technology can be used as a security research tool, while also providing varying degrees of protection.
