Security Experimentation with HoneyPoint

One of the best uses of HoneyPoint is using it to test your assumptions, model risk or otherwise perform experimentation.

If your management team would benefit from understanding how quickly a new web application will be targeted and attacked when deployed, a quick mock up with HoneyPoint can give them that data. If you want to prove to the development team that attackers will find XSS vulnerable apps, a quick publish of a HoneyPoint web app with the XSS vulnerability enabled will get you metrics to support your assertion.

That’s one of my favorite uses of HoneyPoint: to quickly, easily and safely build real world metrics that answer my questions. Sure, it’s a great tool for defense and detection. But I really love using it to scratch my own itch for real world data.
