This version of Honeyd was released under a 4-clause BSD license on 2003-11-22.
The release contains the following new features:
Dynamic Templates: Allows the configuration of a host to adapt depending on the operating system of the remote host, the time of day, the source IP address, etc.
Passive Fingerprinting: Identifies the operating system of the remote host. This feature can be used for logging and for dynamic templates. Based on work by Michal Zalewski and Mike Frantzen.
Tarpit: Slows down the throughput of a connection significantly. This feature can be used to exhaust resources of the remote host.
Link Bandwidth: More realistic simulation of queuing and propagation delay for virtual network topologies. If you care about this, you know what this means.
Python Services: Python support to write service
scripts in Python. This is an experimental feature to increase the performance
of Honeyd by executing services internally without forking a new process.
It contains the following bug fixes:
Correct reference counting of templates. Sometimes, it could happen that frequently used template like
the default template would vanish.
The network parsing code now emits warnings if lower bits in a network are incorrectly set.
