HONEYD CONFIGURATION PDF

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. This series of articles will focus on honeypots using an application called honeyd. There are a number of honeypot solutions out there but I personally feel like honeyd is a great fit because it can be relatively simple or you can start tweaking it to get a more full featured product. For this tutorial I will be using one Windows machine and one Linux machine, Backtrack distribution to be exact. Backtrack will be the machine that is running honeyd. Honeyd is available for Windows but I highly recommend that you use honeyd on Linux.

Multiple honeypots together form a honeynet and this lab demonstrates a honeynet with the following four honeypots: Windows XP at The honeyD configuration file can be used to create honeypots and assign them the network stack of specific operating systems.

In the honeyd configuration file, these are known as personalities. Part 1 The personalities for different honeypots can be assigned using the exact names of network stacks from the nmap. Once the personalities are assigned and the ports are configured using honeyd scripts for different services, the honeypots can be binded with IP addresses as shown below: Figure 02 — HoneyD Config File.

Part 2 Once honeyd is configured with the different honeypots, the honeynet is started with the following command: honeyd —f honeyd. Ping Requests: Ping requests were received by the above mentioned IP addresses to check the reachability of all four honeypots as shown below: Figure 03 — Wireshark — Ping request from Ping requests to check reachability of a destination IP address is common practice for attackers to see if an IP address is alive and reachable.

Port Scanning Once the ping requests were done, multiple port scan attempts were observed in both the log file and the wireshark packet capture file for all four honeypots. Figure 11 — Wireshark — Port scan from Attackers use this strategy to make note of which port allows traffic from which ports.

Two of our Honeypots, namely Windows Server and Cisco experienced this occurrence, which are shown below. Here, we can see that host Figure 27 — Log File — Port scan using different source ports, on Figure 28 — Wireshark — Port scan using different source ports, on The next screenshot shows a similar port scan using source ports and to scan port on the destination with IP address Figure 29 — Log File — Port scan using different source ports, on Figure 30 — Wireshark — Port scan using diiferent source ports, on Port Scan using same source port but different destination ports This activity is used to find out open ports where an attacker wants to serially check all the ports on the destination machine by simply using one source port to see what destination ports will respond.

Again, this is just a variation of attack similar to the previous attack where the difference is use of one source port but different destination ports. Two of our Honeypots that are Windows Server at The log files are displayed below. Figure 31 — Log file — Port scan using same source ports, on Figure 32 — Wireshark — Port scan using same source ports, on Our Cisco Honeypot at Figure 33 — Log file — Port scan using same source ports, on Figure 34 — Wireshark — Port scan using same source ports, on Conclusion This lab demonstrates how multiple honeypots can be used to build a honeynet and the uses they provide to secure your network.

Apart from attracting and distracting attackers from your actual production network these honeynets can also be a vital resource to monitor the attacks on a network and identify attackers and attack methods. This can further help secure your production network. Share this:.

Using HoneyD configurations to build honeypot systems

Overview 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. Honeyd enables a single host to claim multiple addresses - I have tested up to - on a LAN for network simulation. Honeyd improves cyber security by providing mechanisms for threat detection and assessment.

It is a kind of an interactive honeypot. The latest release can be downloaded from Honeyd release page. For my project, I have been working with honeypots, and Honeyd is one of them. During the initial stage, I faced some problems while starting the basic setup of some personalities with Honeyd.
