Perfect solution for the package thieving problem. I put a few .357 holes in my door and sprinkled blood all over the sidewalk. No problems since then.

I find it interesting to see how rarely honeypots are deployed and reported. For many security issues it seems like the best kind of monitoring.

Back in my direct mail days it was standard practise to put seed names and addresses into customer lists so that we could tell if our list was being used outside agreed boundaries.

Even earlier than that, prior to calculators being commonly available there used to be books of tables and ready reckoners. Their tables had small, deliberate precision errors in them, again with the intent of catching copyright breaches.

Still the case now,with electronic data. A handful of incorrect names for certain addresses are included and if there are attempts to contact them then the data can be tracked back.
I await the call on my home number for a handful of names that don't live here. I'm sorry, he isn't in right now please leave your contact details so my company's legal department can contact you.

Steve - this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but it's the first part of the equation: a URL Canary:

https://urlcanary.com/

You generate one of these, embed it in your data set, and set up Google Alerts for it. If it's ever accessed or shared publicly, you'll know your data was compromised.

Some software publishers will add ping back features to their apps, and e-books often contain digital watermarks that are unique to the account that originally purchased the product, so they can track pirated copies back the source. In addition to honeypots, law enforcement organizations like the FBI could seed the internet with "poison" credit card numbers and login credentials, which would then trigger an alert then used in the wild. Even if the sting only led to the arrest of individuals downstream who purchase stolen data (as opposed the ring leaders who actually break into databases), it would ultimately sour the market for stolen data and possibly discourage thieves from seeing it as a worth-the-risk profit making enterprise.

Also, that documentary TV series "To Catch A Predator", where police use fake chat room posts or adds to lure sexual predators who think they're meeting up with a teen; I guess that would be an example of an internet "honeypot" operation. Smile

OK, but wouldn't that scare away the UPS delivery guy too? Smile

But you can tell if they've been around as the holes would have grown to .44 BigGrin

I back a lot of board games on Kickstarter, and I eventually decided to get a PO Box at a UPS store for package deliveries, because too many of my packages went missing between the time they were delivered and the time I got home from work.
