University of Arizona student Nathan Yee has devised a plan to build of battalion of devices from Raspberry Pis to catch hackers. via The Register:
“By running honeypots on our internal network, we are able to detect anomalous events. We gain awareness and insight into our network when network hosts interact with a Raspberry Pi honeypot sensor.
“… activity on the Raspberry Pi is usually indicative of something roaming around our network and a possible security breach.”
The devices ran on the open source Modern Honey Network Threat encapsulating honeypots Dionaea, Kippo, Snort, and Conpot that sucked down a diverse set of threat intelligence indicators, Yee said.
