The Canadian Honeynet Chapter

The Canadian Honeynet chapter was founded in April 2008 at University of New Brunswick, NB, Canada. It is a member of the Honeynet Project, an international non-profit security research organization.

In computer terminology, a honeypot is a trap set to detect, deflect or in some manner counteract attempts at unauthorized use of information systems. Generally, it consists of a computer, data or a network site that appears to be part of a network but which is actually isolated and protected, and which seems to contain information or a resource that would be of value to attackers.

Our primary objectives are to gain insight into the security threats and vulnerabilities of the networks in Canada, investigate tactics and practices of hacker community and share learned lessons with IT community and appropriate forums in academia and law enforcement in Canada.
