Mario: You can’t defend. You can’t prevent. The only thing you can do is detect and respond. By Bruce Schneier


As cybercrime continues to be a major threat to businesses and individuals, it’s important to have effective measures in place to detect attacks.

One such measure is the use of a honeypot, a computer system that is set up to attract and trap cybercriminals or malware in order to study their behavior.

Traditionally, we have two types of honeypots. Low-interaction honeypots rely on static data and rules, making them easily detectable by cybercriminals or malware. Another solution is high-interaction honeypots, which are fully functional computer systems but require constant supervision.

That’s where LLM Honeypot comes in. You don’t have to supervise it, and it replicates a real environment.

LLM honeypot implemented with Beelzebub framework:

The following lines illustrate how to implement an AI honeypot using the Beelzebub framework.
