The new book "Virtual Honeypots" is a great read. I am not sure it will
provide you the depth you are looking for.

What is the thesis of your project? You may need to find books that
detail technologies specific to your project, i.e. "TCP/IP vol I or II"
from Stevens, a detailed reference on SNORT, or a more service (like
APACHE) focused book.

I think it's a great book, but I haven't read other honeypot books so I
can't compare directly. It covers a lot of ground, including every
honeypot technology I'd heard of and quite a few that I hadn't before I
read it.

I think a lot of people find the title slightly misleading - in fact it
has a lot of detail about honeypots in general and is not restricted to
virtualised implementations.
