Security for web applications is an ongoing dilemma. Hackers and bots are getting more and more innovative in bypassing the various defensive tools implemented to enforce security. e-Commerce applications, such as those used for transaction processing, could be placed in a position of not providing a fair chance to all consumers because bots can interact more quickly. This is especially true when a commerce site offers popular inventory items where many traders are competing to get an item that has a limited supply. The e-Commerce site's security is compromised when some traders utilize pre-formatted scripts or spiders to place orders, thus giving them an unfair advantage. The problem is: how to eliminate the interaction of scripts and spiders in a given web application flow while requiring no additional actions taken by a human user. Our paper introduces an innovative multi-layer approach to honeypots where cashing or bypassing the honeypot is technically impractical.

    The paper proposes a reactive roaming scheme for honeypots. The main aim of a honeypot is to capture the activities of the attacker. If the attacker detects honeypot on a system, its value drops. So, the concept of roaming honeypots is being proposed, to prevent the attacker from detecting the...
