Abstract: This study deals with the implementation of a Java based honeypot under a client server architecture model in which the client alerts the server whenever a new attack is encountered. The honeypot is developed in Java that makes it easier to be run under various platforms. Our honeypot architecture is designed as an alerting tool that sends the alert message to the server periodically. This helps the server to trap the attacks and analyse them and get the intrusion information about the hackers. The implementation also has a web based packet viewer interface, which makes the user to easily understand and view the various packets which comes through the network traffic and get the details about the possible attacks. The intrusion detection system has been designed as a GUI SNORT console, which makes easier to view the existing rules and information about the packets.
