The computational systems which are directly connected to the Internet were always and still are vulnerable to intruders and automated attacks. Little information was available as for the actions taken and techniques used by the attackers of the information systems till the end of '90's, due to the fact that all efforts focused on preventing the attackers from intruding the system. This situation started changing since 2000 when "The Honeynet Project'', a non-profit organization made of volunteers, was founded and developed open-code security tools aiming to improve the Internet security. Honeypots and honeynets are two of the most recent tools used for preventing network attacks by malicious users and automated attacks. In the framework of this diploma thesis, a honeypot based on the honeyd software will be installed. In the main body of this thesis a new network service for honeyd will be implemented. Several attacks will be performed to the service afterwards which should normally be detected by honeyd. The first chapter presents the basic information about the networks and the architecture of networks, the concerning attacks and computer networks security. The second chapter provides the basic definitions, categorizations and structures of Honeypot, and Honeynet. The third chapter analyze the definition of Honeyd and a new network service for Honeyd is implemented. Finally, the forth chapter presents the overall conclusions reached.
