LONDON -- The Honeynet Project, a non-profit security research and development organization,
joint effort with the UK Honeynet Project today announced the release of Honeysnap
1.0.1. Honeysnap is the first in a line of analysis tools being designed to answer the
Who? and Why? of network attacks.
Typical internet security analysis tools answer the What, How, and When? of network
attacks, the Honeynet Projects Honeysnap tool is the first to moving organizations
towards completing the resulting questions of Who? and Why? of network attacks.
Honeysnap is a command line tool for parsing single or multiple packet capture data
and producing a first-cut analysis report that identifies significant events within the
captured in the network attack. Honeysnap provides security analysts with a prepared
menu of high value network activity, enabling manual forensic analysis and saving
significant incident investigation time. Honeysnap is highly suitable for batch mode
operation and automation via the security analysts choice of operating systems.
