    Honeynets are computers that are left somewhat unprotected on purpose.
    The objective is to lure hackers (should I say crackers) into them to see what kind of techniques they use.
    A great site to learn more about honeynets is : http://project.honeynet.org/

    so the project did not develop any new technology, do they?
    or they are getting the experience and share it?

    No, the honeynet project has spurred a bunch of spin-off products, many commercial. However, you can always get honeyd at http://www.citi.umich.edu/u/provos/honeyd/

    If you are also looking for the difference between honeypots and honeynets.....
    I believe as noODle said, a honeypot is a computer left relatively unprotected, while a honeynet is a simulated "network" (Web server, email, local LAN, etc) left unprotected....
