Installing Honeyd 1.5c And Arpd 0.2 Under CentOS 5 (With gcc 4.x)

Installing Honeyd 1.5c And Arpd 0.2 Under CentOS 5 (With gcc 4.x)

This tutorial shows how you can install your honeypot by using Honeyd (Virtual Honeypot). Honeyd is a small daemon that creates virtual hosts on a network. The hosts can be configured to run arbitrary services, and their personality can be adapted so that they appear to be running certain operating systems. Continue reading


Установка honeypot на примере OpenSource Honeyd

Honeypots являются новой интересной технологией. Они позволяют нам брать инициативу в свои руки и изучать работу хакеров. В последние несколько лет растет интерес к этой технологии. Цель этой статьи – рассказать вам про honeypots и продемонстрировать их возможности. Мы начнем с обсуждения, что такое honeypots и как они работают, затем перейдем к OpenSource решению Honeyd.

Honeypot / honeyd tutorial part 3, static IP’s

In the past two tutorials I’ve used DHCP to obtain IP’s for our honeypots running honeyd. Using dhcp is fine when testing honeyd and getting familiar with how honeyd works but a static IP may be more suitable for your environment. In my case I initially fooled around with honeyd via dhcp but when I wanted to implement in a more production environment I realized that static IP’s are more stable and less maintenance. In order to ping our honeypot the router / switch has to know what IP and MAC address our honeypot has so it can update it’s information, going through dhcp does this automatically. I’ll touch on how to add the static IP configuration later but first let’s go over our layout. I’ll be using the same simple layout as in the first tutorial as seen below. Continue reading

Honeypot / honeyd tutorial part 2, multiple honeypots

Part one of this series was to mainly get honeyd up and running. Hopefully you also took away from part one that the configuration file, honeyd.conf, is the key to making things work smoothly and properly. Now that you’ve got honeyd up and running let’s tweak honeyd.conf so that we have multiple honeypots running on one installation of honeyd. One honeypot is great but having three or four is even better. Part two is dedicated to showing you how to properly setup multiple honeypots in honeyd. In part one we only emulated a Windows device via the line below in honeyd.conf Continue reading

Honeypot / honeyd tutorial part 1, getting started

If you’ve somehow found my obscure site then you probably already know a little bit about honeypots and their functionality, if not here is a good breakdown. There are many different types of honeypots and these different types are explained very well in the book Virtual Honeypots which I highly recommend you read if you are serious about deploying a honeypot.
