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.
