HoneyBot ? A Windows Based Honeypot High Quality

The first case, has a lot of better ways to find out. For the second case, wat does your windows FW let through, if you need it open, but want to make sure no one is throwing an exploit at it, then you can potentially use a honeypot with a hackable service that matches -- but you'd run them either on a different host. Yes you could run a virtual machine, but your primary host is still exposed at the same time.

This article is in continuation of Part 1 of the series on Ghost USB Honeypot. Malware threats have become very common these days and hence the need of honeypots to detect those malwares have become equally important. In the last few years, we have seen how USB based malwares can be used to target highly protected machines that are not connected to the internet. In order to detect malwares that spread over USB devices, the Ghost USB Honeypot project was started. Ghost is a honeypot for detecting malware that spreads via USB devices. The honeypot currently supports Windows XP and Windows 7. The way Ghost works is that it first tries to emulate a USB thumb drive. If the malware identifies the emulated device as a USB thumb drive, it will try to infect it. Ghost then looks for write requests to the drive, which is an indication of a malware.

In the first part of this article, we covered an interview with the project leader Sebastian Poeplau. In this article we will be discussing how to install and use the honeypot on a windows machine to capture any data or binaries that the malware will install on your USB drive.

Spam traps are also similar to honeypots. They are email addresses or other network functions set up to attract spam web traffic. Spam traps are used in Project Honey Pot, which is a web-based network of honeypots embedded in website software. Its purpose is to harvest and collect the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, email addresses and related information on spammers so web administrators can minimize the amount of spam on their sites. The group's findings are used for research as well and by law enforcement to combat unsolicited bulk mailing offenses.

I treat almost any Windows-based machine in my network as a potential honeypot, so monitoring and logging are pretty intense. We are not so large to afford specialized stuff like Canary so keep everything under tight control. Don't like the idea of having a black sheep within the infrastructure, which an intentionally poorly protected honeypot could be.

HoneyDrive - This Linux distribution is a virtual appliance (OVA) with Xubuntu. It provides more than 10 pre-installed and pre-configured honeypot software packages, as well as analysis and monitoring tools.MHN (Modern Honeypot Network) - This open source project uses a Mongo database and provides extensive tools.KFSensor, - This is an extensive Windows-based honeypot system. This is a professional-grade system with a high price tag, but its flexibility cannot be beat.

The data in NCC's 500 MB capture file "f5-honeypot-release.pcap" ranges from July 7 up until September 28 and contains traffic from over 4000 unique client IP addresses. The packets are captured after having passed through a proxy, which is why all clients have IP "" and the server is always displayed as "". This makes it difficult to split or filter the traffic based on the client IP address. Many HTTP headers have also been masked in the capture file, but the IP portion of the "X-Forwarded-For" header is still intact. You can therefore track clients throughout the capture file by filtering on the "X-Forwarded-For" header, which contains the originating IP address of the client connecting to the proxy. As an example, you can use the following tshark command in order to count the exact number of unique clients in the released PCAP file: tshark -r f5-honeypot-release.pcap -T fields -e http.x_forwarded_for -Y http.x_forwarded_for sort -u wc -l 4310

Traditional security strategies are powerless when facing novel attacks in the complex network environment, such as advanced persistent threat (APT). Compared with traditional security detection strategies, the honeypot system, especially on the Internet of things research area, is intended to be attacked and automatically monitor potential attacks by analyzing network packages or log files. The researcher can extract exactly threat actor tactics, techniques, and procedures from these data and then generate more effective defense strategies. But for normal security researchers, it is an urgent topic how to improve the honeypot mechanism which could not be recognized by attackers, and silently capture their behaviors. So, they need awesome intelligent techniques to automatically check remotely whether the server runs honeypot service or not. As the rapid progress in honeypot detection using machine learning technologies, the paper proposed a new automatic identification model based on random forest algorithm with three group features: application-layer feature, network-layer feature, and other system-layer feature. The experiment datasets are collected from public known platforms and designed to prove the effectiveness of the proposed model. The experiment results showed that the presented model achieved a high area under curve (AUC) value with 0.93 (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve), which is better than other machine learning algorithms.

Based on the research of early honeypot and honeypot detection technology, this paper proposed a honeypot detection technology based on machine learning algorithms. The technology used machine learning technology to achieve accurate honeypot detection through extraction and collection different layer honeypot features. The experimental result proved that honeypots are still insufficient in the degree of simulating real systems, such as the integrity of the simulated service. At the same time, the experimental result provided a reference for the improvement of honeypots and promoted the development of honeypot technology.

Before I get started, I want to take a moment and point outthat there are many different types of honeypot systems. Honeypots can behardware appliances or they can be software based. Software based firewalls canreside on top of a variety of operating systems. For the most part though,honeypots fall into two basic categories; real and virtual.

For the purposes of this article, I will be demonstratinghow to set up a virtual honeypot. As I mentioned earlier, honeypots come in allshapes and sizes. For this article, I will be using a Windows based honeypotknown as KF Sensor. The Key Focus Website offers a 14 day trial that you can try out for yourself.

You can build a wireless honeypot with old hardware, some spare time and,of course, a Linux-based solution. OpenWrt and DD-WRTare the two most popular Linux-based firmware projects for routers. Iuse them and some old spare routers in this article to show you how to build three kinds of honeypots:a very basic one that logs only information about packets sent by users intoits memory, a little more sophisticated one with USB storage that logs afew more details about malicious clients to the storage, and finally,a solution that redirects HTTP traffic through a proxy that notonly can log, but also interfere with communication.

The idea is that you don't need to; having the filled-in the form implies that the user is a bot since no human user should see and hence fill-in the honeypot form field. The server can decide if the user is a bot based on whether they filled in the hidden form.

Today we will be looking at the famous honeypot software called HoneyBOT. which can be downloaded from here. Switch on your kali Linux as the attacker machine and the windows system as your host machine.
