A 'honeypot' is designed to detect server-side attacks. In contrast, a 'honeyclient' is designed to detect client-side attacks. Specifically, a honeyclient is a dedicated host that drives specially instrumented applications to access remote servers to see if those servers are behaving in a malicious manner (by compromising the client). Honeyclients can proactively detect exploits against client applications without known signatures. This framework uses a client-server model with SOAP messaging as the primary communication method, and uses the free version of VMware Server as a means of virtualizing the client environment.
LBackup is a simple backup system aimed at systems administrators who require reliable backups with minimum fuss. It is configured with configuration files, and the backup is started from the command line. It has been tested for over 10 years. Backups can be to local media, or to remote media via one or more networks. The networks may be private LANs, WANs, or sets of untrusted public networks such as the Internet.
geoipgen is an IP network tool for generating geotargeted lists of IP addresses using MaxMind's GeoLite Country database. It can randomly enumerate all IP addresses or a specified number of IP addresses in a particular country or a list of countries. For example, to get all IPs for Japan in a random order, use "geoipgen jp". For a sample of 10,000 IPs from Australia and New Zealand, use "geoipgen -n 10000 au nz".
RedWolf is a security threat simulator that tests security system effectiveness. Its threat generation capabilities include email, IM, malware, P2P, social networking, VoIP, DDoS, and many more. The guiding philosophy is that by generating realistic scenarios in a wide variety of categories, an auditor or organization can assess the effectiveness of network defenses. The scenario suite allows one to verify compliance with PCI-DSS, Sarbanes-Oxley, or HIPAA controls. RedWolf helps identify data loss risks and provides expert recommendations concerning risk mitigation. It reports present findings, recommendations, best practices, and blocking guidance in a straightforward, easily readable format. RedWolf also acts as a 'Red Team' agent, running drills to measure the readiness of your operations staff.
