The HoneyDB Agent is a low-to-medium interaction honeypot for security purposes, that supports emulation of common TCP and UDP network services. The HoneyDB Agent can be configured to send captured honeypot data to the HoneyDB web site – a community-driven honeypot data collection and aggregation security service. Using the HoneyDB Threat Info RESTful API, you can download your honeypot data and/or all community contributed honeypot data to help defend your applications and network. Common network service emulation includes FTP, Telnet, SSH, DNS, MySQL, and more. Learn more about the HoneyDB Agent at https://honeydb-agent-docs.readthedocs.io/en/latest/.
