When addressing the creating a mesh tiled 3D view on an Earth map, i was reading about the geoweb application development. A geoweb application consists of some components.

Dionaea Installation

This summer, I will be dealing with the malware analysis distribution from a visualization perspective at a timeline and geographic basis. To collect data related with malwares, I installed the Dionaea, which is a successor of Nepenthes. The documentation of the Dionaea is plain and easy to follow.

GSoC2011-THP Project 1 - Improve our high interaction client honeypot Capture-HPC

Project Description:
Proposed Capture-HPC Description

Capture-HPC is a high-interaction client honeypot that is capable of seeking out and identifying client-side attacks. It identifies these attacks by driving a vulnerable client to open a file or interact with a potentially malicious server. As it processes the data, Capture-HPC monitors the system for unauthorized state changes that indicate a successful attack has occurred. It is regularly used in surveys of malicious websites that launch drive-by-download attacks. Read more »
