The paper will examine (through case-study) the usability of open source operating systems software for a combined Honeypot sensor server. The study will scrutinize the use of two Unix variants, Linux Red Hat and the Sun Solaris operating systems as candidates for deployment of a combined Honeypot sensor server. Appropriate unbiased metrics, such as extensibility, reliability, ease of install and use, will be employed as a likely criterion to evaluate the operating systems for the role of hosting Honeypot sensor server software.
