    Hrms, not quite what I was expecting.  I know one tactic that some companies may use involves setting a honeypot, that they can then use deep packet inspection on to identify real malicious attacks, and then funnel those types of attacks to one place, and hopefully removing that load from the rest of the network.

    I wish I understood better how that worked at more than a theoretical level though.

    As the article says, one cannot prevent the attacker from launching the attacks but can employ various measures to detect and filter them out.
