Future Work

In order to acquire a greater amount of information the deployment process will be stream-lined. Therefore we plan to develop a live CD or an easy-to-install VMware image of our honeypots. Further, the level of detail of the emulation performed by our honeypots will be increased to improve the realism of the simulation and more accurately mimic a genuinely vulnerable web application. These improvements will enable us to observe a wider range of attack patterns and threats that are launched against today's web applications. Finally it would be very interesting to monitor bogus web spiders. This could be done by setting up a new honeypot that denotes its web pages as not-to-be indexed and logs any access to them.
