honeypot

Catch bad guys when they stick their hands in the honey.

rails 3 best

uses rack… it might work on late versions of rails 2

honeypot models

honeypots (aka requestables like User, Vote, etc.) should define #actor

class User < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :votes
  include Honeypot
  def actor; self; end
end

class Vote < ActiveRecord::Base
  belongs_to :user
  include Honeypot
  def actor; user; end
end

usage in controllers

when somebody touches a honeypot, make sure to log it:

class UsersController < ApplicationController
  def create
    # [...]
    @user.log_action_dispatch_request(request)
    # [...]
  end
end

class VotesController < ApplicationController
  def create
    # [...]
    @vote.log_action_dispatch_request(request)
    # [...]
  end
end

and be creative…

class SessionController < ApplicationController
  # notice when a User logs in
  def create
    # [...]
    current_user.log_action_dispatch_request(request)
    # [...]
  end
end
