For best performance and functionality we have documented some recommendations for running dionaea.
At the moment we do not recommend using Ubtuntu 20.04 or Debian 11 because libemu has been dropped from the package repository. Feel free to have a look at Future of shellcode emulation (libemu)? for more information and to help use.
We provide an official docker image. For detailed instructions please have a look at the dinotools/dionaea docker hub page
Before you start download the source code of dionaea.
Install required build dependencies before configuring and building dionaea. (‘ttf-liberation’ required to ‘util/gnuplotsql.py’)
sudo apt-get install \ build-essential \ cmake \ check \ cython3 \ libcurl4-openssl-dev \ libemu-dev \ libev-dev \ libglib2.0-dev \ libloudmouth1-dev \ libnetfilter-queue-dev \ libnl-3-dev \ libpcap-dev \ libssl-dev \ libtool \ libudns-dev \ python3 \ python3-dev \ python3-bson \ python3-yaml \ python3-boto3 \ fonts-liberation
After all dependencies have been installed successfully create a build directory and run
cmake to setup the build process.
mkdir build cd build cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/opt/dionaea ..
Now you should be able to run
make to build and run
make install to install the honeypot.
make sudo make install
The new honeypot can be found in the directory
The packages below are 3rd party provided, which is appreciated. If you have compiled a package for your own distribution, just send me the link or make a pull request.
Before you use 3rd party packages please check if you get the latest version of dionaea.
We are not responsible and it is hard to debug if you use 3rd party packages. If you have any issues with the packages please also contact the package maintainer.
