First Honeyd Challenge - Test Your Programming Skills
by Berislav Kucan - Thursday, 20 February 2003
Honeyd is a virtual honeypot running as a small daemon to create virtual hosts on a network. The hosts can be configured to run arbitrary services and their personality can be adapted so that they appear to be running certain operating systems.

The goal of this challenge is to develop interesting feature additions to Honeyd. Possible improvements are forensic analysis tools for Honeyd log files, passive fingerprinting of connections, realistic routing topologies, etc. Your submissions will be judged by a panel of experienced volunteers, rated, and shared with the security community.

Best solutions will be awarded: top prizes include a free pass to CanSecWest/core03 including a free hotel room for up to four days, a $200 and a $100 Amazon gift certificate. Furthermore, the top ten entries will receive a copy of Lance Spitzner's new book "Honeypots: Tracking Hackers," signed by Lance Spitzner and Niels Provos.
