A team of students from the Diploma of Cyber & Digital Security have developed a honeypot as part of their major project in their third year of study. Their project was named “Dionaea Honeynet Intelligence Centre”. Their project was featured in the Straits Times dated October 29 2011, as show above.
Honeypot is simply a trap to detect and counterattack unauthorized use of information systems. It consists of a computer, data and / or a network site resembling as bait by appearing to be part of a network, but is actually isolated and monitored.
All in all, even though this is a diploma level project, our students had successfully developed an industry level program, and were able to make a name for themselves through the media.
This is a video illustrating their project:
