Honeynet is a framework containing more than one honeypot to provide data control, data capture, and data analysis. This framework aims to simulate a highly controllable attack or decoy for the security analysis of a network. In this paper, the Xen-based virtual machine solution is proposed to build the virtual honeynet. A virtual honeynet deploys a honeynet on a physical machine based on virtual machine technology with the advantages of low cost as well as convenient management, and maintenance features. The virtual honeynet system includes dynamic resource allocation, data control, data capture, data presentation, and analysis. It is lightweight but has high performance, which is verified with extensive experiments.
