Honeyd 0.8a

This version of Honeyd was released under the GNU General Public License (GPL) on 2004-04-14.

New Features

It contains the following new features:

  • Management console: Using the management console it is possible to dynamically change Honeyd's configuration while the daemon is running.
  • Ethernet-level network emulation: This allows each individual honeypot to have its own Ethernet address and allows production net virtual honeypots without requiring Arpd.

Bug Fixes

It contains the following bug fixes:

  • Clear FIN flag only when no Nmap fingerprints match. This should fix the Nmap detection problem that some people have been experiencing.

Regression Testing

I am looking for a machine donation to be able to run regression and performance tests of Honeyd on several different operating systems. If you are in a position to donate a machine for this purpose, please contact Niels Provos.
