This blog post is the first of a two-part series in response to the Wired article of Oct 14, 2014, "How Microsoft Appointed Itself Sheriff of the Internet." [McM14] I find some problems with this article that raise questions about the depth of research into some elements of the story, and an appearance of bias in how "unintended consequences" are presented.

A few months ago I read the paper "Technical analysis of client identification mechanisms" . The paper is really interesting and it is really worth investing your time and reading. Just a brief excerpt from the abstract:
Thug 0.6 was released just a few hours ago. The most important change introduced during the 0.5 branch was a complete redesign of the logging infrastructure which is now completely modular. This makes adding (or removing) new logging modules extremely easy.
Angelo, you have been HNP CEO for more than over a year now. What were your goals when you started and did you achieve them?
First of all let me confess that it seems really incredible to me that a year has already gone by. I took over the CEO position for the Honeynet Project from Christian Seifert more than a year ago and at times the role appeared quite intimidating to me. Christian and Honeynet Project founder Lance Spitzner did an awesome job of driving the organization
last week I published kippo fork https://gitlab.labs.nic.cz/honeynet/kippo
which contains commits from https://github.com/micheloosterhof/kippo-mo
(Michel Oosterhof brought awesome SFTP, and exec support)
and original kippo https://github.com/desaster/kippo
(I am very pleased is now on github. was on google code before).
On top of that are my changes:
The Italian Chapter is proud to release the latest version of dorothy2 (our ruby-based malware analysis framework) :).
A few days ago I was contacted by our CPRO, Leon van der Eijk, and asked to write a blog post about my own project called Bifrozt; something which I was more than happy to do. :) This post will explain what Bifrozt is, how this got started, the overall status of the project and what will happen further down the road.
What is Bifrozt?
Finally we can announce with great pleasure the first public beta of the Beeswarm project.
Beeswarm is an active IDS project that provides easy configuration, deployment and management of honeypots and clients. The project differentiates itself by two key items:
The team working on the ICS/SCADA honeypot Conpot, just merged in a more mature support for STIX (Structured Threat Information eXpression) formatted reporting via TAXII (Trusted Automated eXchange of Indicator Information) into the master branch on Github.
