“Honeytrap is a network security tool written to observe attacks against TCP services. As a low-interactive honeypot, it collects information regarding known or unknown network-based attacks and thus can provide early-warning information. The daemon monitors the network stream for incoming connections and dynamically starts server processes if it detects a request to an unbound port. Honeytrap can also be set up as a meta honeypot that forwards several attacks to other systems or, in mirror mode, redirects a connection back to the initiator. Several plugins are available for automated attack analysis.”
