[Unix/Internet] A special environment set up to trap a
cracker logging in over remote connections long enough to be
traced. May include a modified shell restricting the
cracker's movements in unobvious ways, and "bait" files
designed to keep him interested and logged on. See also backdoor, firewall machine, Venus flytrap, and Clifford
Stoll's account in "The Cuckoo's Egg" of how he made and
used one. Compare padded cell.
