This project investigates how to better detect and constrain attackers of computer environments, including servers, desktops, email, smartphones and other IoT devices.We deploy intentionally vulnerable devices, or honeypots, and monitor the activity of individuals who attempt to attack the devices. Our findings show how to “nudge” attackers to behave predictably, and inform how to mitigate the consequences of cyberattacks to environments and victims.
