With less that 24 hours now remaining until the official deadline for Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2013 student applications (19:00 UTC Friday May 3rd 2013), this is our final call for interested and eligible GSoC students. If you are interested or intend to get involved, please apply now.
For anyone new to the GSoC program, or anyone who has already talked to us on IRC (#gsoc-honeynet on irc.freenode.net) or on our public GSoC mailing list, please remember that you must still submit your student application the Google’s official GSoC 2013 form in Melange for it to be official.
After a tense few days for all of the organizations who applied, The Honeynet Project is delighted to announce that it has once again been selected as one the participating mentoring organizations in Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2013. This is great news and should make for another very exciting summer for many students, mentors and team members, so many thanks to Google’s and their Open Source Projects Office for their continued support of both us and free open source software (FLOSS) in general.
Like many other open source organizations, The Honeynet Project’s members have been excitedly waiting to hear if Google would be running their Google Summer of Code (GSoC) initiative again this year. Well, the wait the over and GSoC 2013 has officially been announced on Google’s Open Source Blog. This is great news!
The timing of Google’s announcement was perfect, since the Honeynet Project were holding our Annual Workshop in Dubai the same week, which gave us time to hit the ground running and kick off internal preparations.
Ready for the Honeynet Project Meeting in February, we are pleased to announce our second release of HoneyProxy!
Started as a Google Summer of Code 2012 project, HoneyProxy is a lightweight tool that allows live HTTP and HTTPS traffic inspection and analysis. This release features a new Report Editor which allows you to analyze your flows, aggregate data or search for anomalies in your traffic dumps. It is our first independent release after GSoC 2012 and I’m happy to say that HoneyProxy has grown steadily over the last months.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
1. Ongoing development of hypervisor-based honeypot monitoring using virtual machine introspection (VMI) on Xen and KVM platforms.
The updated version of APKInspector is a powerful static analysis tool for Android Malicious applications. It provide convenient and various features for smartphone security engineers. With the sensitive permission analysis, static instrumentation and easy-to-use graph-code interaction .etc, they can get a thorough and deep understanding of the malicious applications on Android. The improvement mainly focus on two categories: User Interface and Security Analysis. The goal is to build an easy-to-use tool with strong security analysis features.
As the end of GSoC 2012 will come in the next few days, i am proud to announce IPv6-guard. IPv6-guard is an IPv6 attack detector tool including some defense mechanisms to protect against most of recent attacks on ipv6 protocol suite.
2.1 How it works
At first, the tool will gather “genuine” informations of connected network. Those information includes IP and MAC address of neighbors and routers on the network.
I’m announcing the new features of Android dynamic analysis tool DroidBox as GSoC 2012 approaches the end. In this release, I would like to introduce two parts of my work: DroidBox porting and APIMonitor.
DroidBox for Android 2.3 Based on TaintDroid 2.3, I’ve ported DroidBox to support Android 2.3 and fixed some bugs.
Download bata version: http://droidbox.googlecode.com/files/DroidBox23.tar.gz Source code repository: https://github.com/kelwin Usage is same with the previous version. You can check the project page.
AfterGlow cloud has evolved further into another release; with many improvements added to the initial version. With GSoC 2012 approaching an end, we’ve covered all the additional features we planned for in the second phase of development, post mid-term. Building up on the initial version, this post will run you through the general features and additional improvements covered.
A live demo of this release can be found here: http://andromeda.ayrus.net:8080/
Data sources: In addition to the initial method of uploading AfterGlow compatible CSV file, the application now supports two new methods of visualizing your data.
