New version of honeypot monitoring tool Qebek available

Folks, Chengyu Song has been busy the last few weeks and made some upgrades to the honeypot monitoring tool Qebek. He has ported it from QEMU 0.9.1 to QEMU 0.13.0. As a result, Qebek's performance (boot time) is better and it no longer requires gcc 3.4. You can check it out

Announcing the publication of Know Your Tools: Qebek - Conceal the Monitoring

I am very pleased to announce another publication of our Know Your Tools series: Qebek - Conceal the Monitoring authored by Chengyu Song and Jianwei Zhuge from the Chinese Chapter and Brian Hay from the Alaskan Chapter.

The paper is available from http://honeynet.org/papers/KYT_qebek.

Paper abstract
For the last few years, while low-interaction (LI) honeypot systems like Nepenthes and PHoneyC are getting more and more powerful, the progress of high-interaction (HI) honeypot technology has been somewhat slower. This is especially true for Sebek, the de-facto HI honeypot monitoring tool. In this KYT paper, we introduce Qebek, a QEMU based HI honeypot monitoring tool which aims at improving the invisibility of monitoring the attackers’ activities in HI honeypots.
