 In 250 words or more, answer the following.

Both a firewall and a honeypot can function as an IDS. While the firewall's main purpose is typically to establish a barrier between two networks to control traffic, the honeypot is a unique type of IDS providing other functionality. One of your clients has asked you if they need to install both, or will one of them alone provide adequate protection for their network?

Briefly analyze and discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each of the possible configurations (for example, firewall only, honeypot only, both firewall and honeypot) and answer your client's question on the need for both.
