Simulating Networks with Honeyd

We wrote a paper on simulating networks with Honeyd:

Some of Honeyd's cool networking features are:

- You can simulate a complex network topology with multiple routers in
just one box
- Configure network characteristics like latency, loss and bandwidth to
simualte real-world networks
- Deploy multiple entry routers to serve multiple networks from one
- Integrate external physical machines into your virtual network
- Set up distributed Honeyd networks using GRE tunnels

The paper builds a sample network one step at a time to show how these
features can be used. The paper also includes a sample honeyd.conf
template that can be modified to simulate your own network.

Thanks to Lance Spitzner, Niels Provos, Ed Balas, and Laurent Oudot for
all the ideas and suggestions. This paper was so much more fun writing
with all your ideas coming in.
