Presentation Title: Towards an Invisible Honeypot Monitoring System
Presentation Details:

Honeypot is a decoy system to trap attackers, and data capture tool is one of the core components of the honeypot architecture. The most vital requirement of this component is that it must function as stealthily as possible, so the intruder is not aware of its presence. Currently Sebek is the most sophisticated tool for this purpose. Unfortunately Sebek is rather easy to detect, even with unprivileged right access. This talk discusses the drawbacks of Sebek, then proposes an architecture and implementation of a tool named Xebek. Based on Xen Virtual Machine technology, Xebek aims to address the most outstanding problems of Sebek. While Xebek provides the similar features as Sebek does, our tool is far more “invisible” and harder to uncover. The experimental results also demonstrate that Xebek is more flexible, while the reliability and efficiency are significantly improved over its counterpart.
