Summary0002645: OpenCanary
DescriptionOpenCanary is an easy to deploy alerting honeypot for internal networks and, like many security tools, is dual-use across both offensive and defensive work

An example use is to collect credentials by setting up an SSH service and logging incoming credentials (inventory systems or authenticated vulnerability scanners are examples where this happens). OpenCanary lets you set that up in moments, across multiple protocols. Alternatively, use as tripwire for when a machine of interest is being poked at. For more see our blackhat 2015 talk:

Install on Kali-linux 2.0:

apt-get install python-virtualenv
virtualenv env
source env/bin/activate
pip install opencanary

To run:

opencanaryd --copyconfig
vi /root/.opencanary.conf # set tftp.enabled to false
opencanaryd --start
nmap -sV localhost

Resource requirements: minimal (the code even runs on Raspberry

ps. I'm one of the devs, so any feedback is welcome
