Honeynet research has become more important as a way to overcome the limitations imposed by the use of individual honeypots. A honeynet can be defined as a network of honeypots following certain topology. Although there are at present many existing honeynet solutions, no taxonomies have been proposed in order to classify them. In this paper, we propose such taxonomy, identifying the main criteria used for its classification and applying the classification scheme to some of the existing honeynet solutions, in order to quickly get a clear outline of the honeynet architecture and gain insight of the honeynet technology. The analysis of the classification scheme of the taxonomy allows getting an overview of the advantages and disadvantages of each criterion value. We later use this analysis to explore the design space of honeynet solutions for the proposal of a future optimized honeynet solution.
