Honeyd 0.6: Happy Summer/Pre-Birthday Release
This version of Honeyd was released under a 4-clause BSD license on 2003-06-23.
The release contains the following new features:
- Plugin Support: Allow external
developers to hook into the Honeyd packet stream. Thanks to Christian
- Faster Routing Code: The routing code
has been improved to scale to larger topologies using trinary tree
code provided by Bill Cheswick.
- Asymmetric Routing: Support for
asymmetric routes and GRE tunneling allowing distributed Honeyd
installations and virtualization of dispersed topologies.
- External Machine Integration:
External machines can be integrated into the virtual routing topology
to create more realistic honeynets. This feature may also be used for
network simulation by placing several machines at different ends of
the topology and see how packets are affected by packet loss, etc.
- Subsystem Sharing: Subsystems can be
shared between different virtual hosts now to increase the performance
on large networks.
Honeyd 0.6 has been superseded by a security update. Please, install a newer version.
