This paper deals with the basic aspects of Honeypots, their use in modem computer networks and their implementation in educational environments. Initially, the implementation of Honeypots solves a common problem of Information Security and Forensics: The dissection of the elements that make up an attack against a computer system. Next, the paper explains the different types and functions of Honeypots once they are implemented in a network in order to make a distinction in terms of what is needed for the Honeypot to do. Finally, the use of Honeypots in educational environments, its benefits and the use of virtualization technologies is discussed.
