For Kippo 0.5Publisher's description


Kippo is a Security software developed by Upi Tamminen. After our trial and test, the software is proved to be official, secure and free. Here is the official description for Kippo:

BSEditor: Kippo is a medium interaction SSH honeypot designed to log brute force attacks and, most importantly, the entire shell interaction performed by the attacker.
Some interesting features:
Fake FileSystem with the ability to add/remove files. A full fake filesystem resembling a Debian 5.0 installation is included
Possibility of adding fake file contents so the attacker can 'cat' files such as /etc/passwd. Only minimal file contents are included
Session logs stored in an UML compatible format for easy replay with original timings
Just like Kojoney, Kippo saves files downloaded with wget for later inspection
Trickery; ssh pretends to connect somewhere, exit doesn't really exit, etc .
How to run it?
Edit kippo.cfg to your liking and start the honeypot by running:
./ is a simple shell script that runs Kippo in the background using twistd. Detailed startup options can be given by running twistd manually. For example, to run Kippo in foreground:
twistd -y kippo.tac -n
By Default Kippo listens for ssh connections on port 2222. You can change this, but do not change it to 22 as it requires root privileges. Use port forwarding instead. (More info: MakingKippoReachable).
