Google Summer of Code 2018

23 Jan 2018 Maximilian Hils gsoc
After successfully participating in GSoC between 2009 and 2017, and having created or extended many honeynet technologies that have since gone on to become industry standard tools, we are very happy to announce that The Honeynet Project has applied to be a mentoring organization once again in GSoC 2018. While last year’s GSoC saw significant changes to the program structure, the program has not seen major adjustments this year. We are very happy that the new payment model and the added third evaluation came to stay!

So It crash after some time with error: [user.tcp] accept tcp [::]:5000: accept4: too many open files, and this error was due to the allowance of limited number of open file descriptors by the operating system.
