Within two years, there will be a hundred." Spitzner also covers legal issues, one of the most controversial subjects concerning honeypots, receiving extensive guidance from the Department of Justice in writing the legal material. The book, Know Your Enemy was written by a team of authors, and focuses on a special type of honeypot via a research project called The Honeynet Project. This new book is written by the acknowledged honeypot expert and discusses many different types of honeypot technologies. They are perfect companion books.
