Georgia Tech Builds New Robot to Fight Hackers


Georgia Tech has built a new robot that will help prevent and sound the alarm for any cyberattacks. This bot, called the HoneyBot, is going to be loaded with false sensor data so as to attract hackers and deter them from the real robots running an industrial factory. When the HoneyBot is aware of a cyberattack, it will sound an alarm to let factory operators know so something can be done. The HoneyBot was produced from the idea of the honey pot computer which is commonly used in offices by IT security professionals. The honey pot is also used as a decoy computer that is meant to slow down hackers while giving IT professionals time to thwart the attack.
