This project is about building honeypots with Raspberry Pi - a credit card sized ARM Linux box.

Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a credit sized single board computer developed by Raspberry Pi Foundation. With the initial intention of promoting the teaching of basic computer science in school, this ARM linux box would be one of the good candidates for deploying honeypot sensors. Low cost, low power consumption with headless setup. It could simply turn into a powerful honeypot or attack detector.


Honeeepi is a honeypot sensor on Raspberry Pi which based on customized Raspbian OS. It is pre-installed with Dionaea honeypot and would contribute to HPFeeds data feeds.


We have released the Honeeepi image (version 2013.10). You can download the latest Honeeepi image from https://sourceforge.net/projects/honeeepi/


We will document the detailed installation guide soon. Meanwhile, you should be able to use the Honeeepi image with headless setup easily, if you experienced the installation of some commom raw images (e.g. Raspbian, OpenElEC)

Some brief steps of installation:

a) Prepare the SD Card

Example: create and format single partition for entire SD Card

b) Write the Honeeepi image into the SD Card (using unix tool dd). This would be similiar as installing Raspbian OS

Example: dd bs=2M if=honeeepi-201310.img of=/dev/sdb

c) Power up the Raspberry Pi and connect to the wired network. Honeeepi image is started with 'dhcpd' and 'sshd' as default.

d) Once you locate the Honeeepi network address, login to Honeeepi with SSH (TCP/22).

Default login: pi / raspberry

Current supported honeypots

- Dionaea (http://dionaea.carnivore.it)


Next steps, we would setup and deploy various sensors e.g. Kippo, 6Guard (IPv6 attack detector) on Honeeepi (based Raspberry Pi). Feel free to contact Honeeepi Dev Team if any feedback
