There's tools to do specifically that. However, you probably already have many
of the tools you need - just point stuff like nmap and nessus at your honeypot
and see if your WAF notices. If it doesn't notice you doing the nmap, it won't
notice an attacker doing the nmap. If you have hping3, try sending a few
christmas-tree packets at your honeypot, see what happens. Get a copy of
metasploit and point it at the honeypot. And so on. Pretty much any auditing
tool you have can also be used as an attack tool.
