Earlier today, someone commented on the do trespassing laws apply to the internet post, by saying not to get him (or her) started on why honeypots were entrapment. Well... perfect timing. At the Black Hat Briefings today a Justice Department lawyer laid out all the pitfalls of setting up honeypots, including that they might be considered entrapment. They also might violate wiretap laws, and people who set up honeypots may be liable for any damages if those honeypots are used for an attack.
