HoneyBot - Capture, Upload And Analyze Network Traffic


HoneyBot is a set of scripts and libraries for capturing and analyzing packet captures with PacketTotal.com. Currently this library provides three scripts:
  • capture-and-analyze.py - Capture on an interface for some period of time, and upload capture for analysis.
  • upload-and-analyze.py - Upload and analyze multiple packet captures to PacketTotal.com.
  • trigger-and-analyze.py - Listen for unknown connections, and begin capturing when one is made. Captures are automatically uploaded and analyzed.

Warning
Any packet capture uploaded to becomes publicly available upon completed analysis.

Limitations
  • Only .pcap and .pcapng files supported.
  • 6 MB analysis max.
For more information visit PacketTotal.com.

Use Cases
  1. Set your honeypot up to stream network traffic directly to PacketTotal.com for analysis.
  2. Analyze a personal repository of malicious PCAPs.
  3. Determine the benignity of hundreds of packet captures.
  4. Automate analyzing (and sharing) honeypot packet captures.
  5. Automate preliminary malware analysis/triage.

Prerequisites:
  • WireShark must be installed.
    • If you are on a linux based operating system you can just install t-shark
      • apt-get install tshark
  • Python 3.5 or later is required.
  • You must request an api key, before you can leverage these scripts.

Installation
