RE: How Would I Find the Actual Name of the Honeypot Software via a Pen Test?



This could be easier than you think. Goto http://honeyd.org/contrib.php and
download the service scripts you might think they are using. Then look at
the code, it's quite the simple code. Then diff the responses against the
code. Now such a challenge is nothing more than a ego boost on their part,
due to you being the "enemy"...This in of itself can be used for social engy
work maybe :) Another thing I would look for is if arpd is being used, if
you can monitor layer 2 traffic, see if arpd might be in use, this too will
point to honeyd. In fact, if you can finger print the server as linux, it's
a good bet it's honeyd. What about the coders they have, any linux
experience, perl? Python? Linux in house? Have you compromised any of the
linux servers? Looked for honeyd on those? Any webmin running :)?

Tangents I'd start with...,

Well, here's a list:

http://www.honeypots.net/honeypots/products

If you can actually tell them the name of the software then you're THE MAN.

I'm assuming that within the honeypot configs, you can pick which services
you'd want to be open. With that in mind, I don't think there's any way of
knowing what the actual software is. And even assuming you know the OS,
unless you're analyzing packets, the honeypot should be able to "mimic" (to
a certain extent) an IIS server, it could be sitting on a BSD or any
linux/unix variant box.

this one might require some social engineering...

Good afternoon,

I'm doing a pen test a new IPS appliance from outside the network,
while working through the assessment I found that the server
designated as my target was a honeypot set up by our server team
rather than a normal server.

I've now been challenged to now tell them the actual name of the
honeypot software they are using.

So with that, I figure I'd ask the pros, hoping that someone has a
suggestion other than me low crawling under the raised floor in the
server room looking for the host server:P


Thanks for the help!

Tony
