While the results will be interesting, I don't think it can be
properly classified as a honeypot. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't
this a HIPS/HIDS with event correlation and analysis? The users of
the product aren't exactly trying to have a juicy/interesting target
and lure in an attack for early detection and event analysis. This
solution may however share some of the same benefits of a honeypot.
