Want to Use Ghost in Your Own Setup?

This is a short introduction to one of the features that the upcoming Ghost 0.2 will offer. I expect to release the new version in late August or early September.

There is a command-line frontend for Ghost already that controls the honeypot's operation, but its capabilities are limited. In particular, the only way to get feedback from Ghost is to read the command-line output. That's only slightly inconvenient if you run the tool manually, but it's not at all suitable for automation, and it makes integrating Ghost into individual analysis setups unnecessarily complicated.

Hello World!

All GSoC 2012 students, including those working for HoneyNet, started their projects a long time ago. Since “Midterm evaluation” has passed too, I would like to share some experience and code with you. Please keep in mind this is still a beta version and some things may change during the second part of coding period, however comments and tips will be helpful, as always :-)

Good morning folks

My apologies for the delay on this one. It appears the the wily coyote has passed on his tricks to my Internet connection and as such I've been offline for a fairly large portion of time. No matter....onward to the readables !!

Current Status of Ghost

As the first half of the HP summer of code has passed, I'd like to give a short update on the current status of the Ghost USB honeypot.

HoneyProxy HTTP/HTTPS - Beta Release

At the middle of GSoC 2012, we are happy and proud to release a beta version of HoneyProxy, a lightweight tool that allows live HTTP and HTTPS traffic inspection and analysis.

Unlike other network tools like WireShark that display flow packet by packet, HoneyProxy only displays application layer data. Web objects then can be viewed through a browser.

AfterGlow Cloud: Initial release

With the marking of the mid-term milestone in GSoC 2012, we're happy to announce a first version release of AfterGlow Cloud. After a lot of discussions and review the project seems to be in a good position for an initial release. The project in essential is based on AfterGlow [1], a security visualization tool which facilitates generating visual graphs from data you upload. The tool described at [1] is originally command-line based, the aim of this project, in general is to bring this tool and its options to the cloud -- so as to provide a neat interface for on-the-fly visualizations.

Synchronous Communication between Kernel and User Space

In this post I'd like to describe some aspects of the communication between kernel and user mode in the Ghost USB honeypot. More specifically, I'll focus on how to realize blocking communication with the Windows Driver Frameworks (WDF).

Forensic Challenge 11 - "Dive Into Exploit" - Submission Deadline Passed

Folks,
the submission deadline for the Forensic Challenge 11 "Dive Into Exploit" created by Georg Wicherski from Giraffe Chapter has passed.

We have received 2 good submissions and will be announcing results before the end of July. Without doubt, this challenge was one of the most difficult ones the Honeynet Project provided in the last years so we are really glad about the submitted solutions which seems really high-level at a first glance.
