How to Deploy and Setup HoneyDrop Honeypot in AWS

This guide details how to deploy and setup the HoneyDrop appliance in AWS. This appliance will expose fake services often targeted by cyber criminals. Its purpose is to lure attackers to itself thereby generating logs and alarms indicating that a nefarious actor may be on the network. When a HoneyDrop service is interacted with, the activity gets logged to AWS CloudWatch which can generate alerts to be sent to email or SMS. Alternatively, CloudWatch alarms can trigger Lambda functions to invoke incident response actions on your behalf.
