A honeypot is a computer software or device that exists simply to be attacked. You can take any computer -- typically one you're getting ready to decommission because it's old and underpowered -- and use it as a honeypot. Because it's no longer a legitimate production asset, no person or service should be connecting to it. When something (such as a hacker or malware) connects to it, the honeypot sends an alert that can trigger an immediate incident response.
