Small daemon that creates virtual hosts simulating their services and behaviour

Honeyd is a small daemon that creates virtual hosts on a network. The hosts can be configured to run arbitrary services, and their TCP personality can be adapted so that they appear to be running certain versions of operating systems. Honeyd enables a single host to claim multiple addresses on a LAN for network simulation. It is possible to ping the virtual machines, or to traceroute them. Any type of service on the virtual machine can be simulated according to a simple configuration file. Instead of simulating a service, it is also possible to proxy it to another machine.


    * Simulates thousands of virtual hosts at the same time.
    * Configuration of arbitrary services via simple configuration file:
       o Includes proxy connects.
    * Simulates operating systems at TCP/IP stack level:
       o Fools nmap and xprobe,
       o Adjustable fragment reassembly policy,
       o Adjustable FIN-scan policy.
    * Simulation of arbitrary routing topologies:
      o Configurable latency and packet loss.
