HoneyDrive – Honeypots In A Box

Don't let your data go over to the Dark Side!

HoneyDrive is a pre-configured honeypot system in virtual hard disk drive (VMDK format) with Ubuntu Server 11.10 32-bit edition installed. It currently contains Kippo SSH honeypot. Additionally it includes useful scripts and utilities to analyze and visualize the data it captures. Lastly, other helpful tools like tshark (command-line Wireshark), pdftools, etc. are also present.

In the future more software will be added such as Dionaea malware honeypot and Honeyd.

You can get the latest version (0.1) of HoneyDrive which contains Kippo SSH honeypot and related scripts (kippo-graph, kippo-stats, kippo-sessions, etc). Everything is pre-configured to work.

After downloading the file, you must uncompress it and then you simply have to create a new virtual machine (suggested software: Oracle VM VirtualBox) and select the VMDK drive as its hard disk.

You can download HoneyDrive here:

    You Tweet box overlays the first paragraph’s left-hand side using Firefox 17.0 browser making reading it a bother.

    It would help if the tweet box were either user movable or placed statically in the upper right-hand corner of your web page away from the text paragraphs.

      Hey Tom, I just grabbed Firefox 17 to check it out, no problems over here. It may be an add-on you are using, try clearing cache etc and see if that helps. This is how I see it:

        Viewed with 16.0, 16.2, 17 and IE 9. All look proper.

          Thanks for the confirmation Bruce – I thought I’d tested it fairly well.

    Now is dionaea installed or not yet? Your article has conflicting statements there.

      Yah sorry, bad editing on my part. The previous version had all of those, but due to a naming conflict (it was called HoneyBox) some things have changed. A version should be released soon with the additional software.

    From the dev web page:

    NOTE: The description is not very accurate for the current state of HoneyDrive. Right now only Kippo SSH honeypot and its related tools are included, but all of the above will be present in future releases.

    When you will add Dionaea ?

    Hello friends, this is Ion, I’m developing this project…
    Soon I will release a new GUI version based on Xubuntu with more tools and Dionaea of course. Stay tuned, I will make sure to inform this site as well. Regards.
