HoneyS – Sinkhole Honeypot
DIPLOMA IN INFOCOMM SECURITY MANAGEMENT
To provide network administrators with a tool that has real-time packet analysis and redirection capabilities, and is able to identify and respond to malicious and/or heavy network traffic.
The idea of a network sinkhole has been around for quite awhile. However, there is a lack of standards and most (if not all) sinkholes available in the market are proprietary. As such, there is a need for an open source sinkhole.
The tool, which the team worked on, is not a plugin to improve existing honeypot technologies. It focuses on integrating production / operation networks with the sinkhole honeypot.
The idea is that all traffic will be allowed within a specific network, and subsequently intercepted by a "middle-man" that will respond accordingly to each type of network traffic.
