Status Reports


The Honeynet Project is an international, non-profit organization made up of Chapters from around the world. Below you will find details on our overall structure, including directors, officers, Chapters and our membership.

Last Updated: 02 April 2008

Overall Structure
As a legal 501c3 entity incorporated in the United States, the Honeynet Project structure follows the same format as many other non-profit corporations. We have a Board of Directors that is elected for a three year term by the Full-Membership. The BOD then appoints officers to run the day to day activities. Officers create their own committee to help advise them in these day to day activities. To help maintain governance of our membership around the world, all members belong to a local Chapter. To learn more about our structure and governance model please review our organizational bylaws.


Board of Directors
The Board of Directors are elected by Full-Members of the Honeynet Project. They have overall responsibility and authority for the organization. They are responsible for long term strategy and policy of the organization. Directors serve a three year, staggered term.

rule Chapters
The Honeynet Project is based on an international Chapter model. Chapters are smaller, self governed entities that help us manage the global structure of our organization. Each Chapter is made up of Full-Members and Contributors. Full-Members are trusted members of the Honeynet Project that have the authority to vote on all Honeynet Project related issues. Contributors are members of the public that work with their local Chapter, but are not official members of the Honeynet Project. Below we list our current Chapters and their Full-Members. A Full-Member is required to be associated with a Chapter. You can learn more about any Chapter by simply clicking on the link to their own website.
