Founded in 1999, The Honeynet Project is an international, non-profit (501c3) research organization dedicated to improving the security of the Internet at no cost to the public. The Honeynet Project, led by Lance Spitzner, is an international project and implimentation to develop and analyze computer honeynet and honeypot data, and to conduct further research into how malicious hackers act.It consists of many chapters worldwide that are developing tools and performing security research. It consists of volunteer organisation of security professionals dedicated to researching cyber threats. It is done by deploying networks around the world to be hacked. Honeypots and Honeynets today are part of the tool-set
of network administrators and security researchers. The easiest way to deploy the honeynets is the use of the Honeynet Project's Honeywall which is a Linux
distribution that contains a prepackaged system for rapid deployment of honeynets.The Administration includes all the system and honeynet configuration such as users, authentication and IP addresses; Data capture includes all the mechanisms for collecting the data
from the wire. The current Honeywall uses a data model first introduced
by Balas and Viecco and which is implemented by perl scripts.
The main goals of honeynet are:
About the threats and vulnerabilities that exist in the Internet today. The 'Know Your Enemy 'series of papers provides a understanding of the threats and basic measures they can take to mitigate it.
provide details to better secure and defend the resources of the informed people. Know Your Enemy whitepapers and our Scan of the Month challenges are aimed at providing these challenges
provide the tools and techniques internally developed are provided to organizations interested in continuing their own research about cyber threat.
