Analysis: Honeypot Datasets


Earlier this week Markus released two anonymised data sets from live Dionaea installations. The full write-up and data sets can be found on the newly migrated carnivore.it news feed here. Perhaps unsurprisingly I couldn’t help but run the data through my statistics scripts to get a quick idea of  what was seen by the sensors.

This caused some immediate problems, before the data was released Markus had contacted me to point out/complain that the performance from my script is ideal. Performance wasn’t an issue I had encountered, but the database from the sensor I run is ~1MB, the smaller of the released data sets is ~300MB, with the larger being 4.1GB. I immediately tried to rectify the problem and am proud to report,…

I failed miserably. I had tried to move some of the counting and loops from the python code and migrate to more complex SQL queries, working on the theory that working with large datasets should be more efficient within databases as they are designed for working with sets of data. Theory was proved false, actually increasing run-time by about 20%, so I won’t be releasing the changes. Good job I’ve never claimed to be a developer. All this being said, the script still crunches through the raw data in 30seconds and 3minutes respectively.

Without further ado, the Berlin data-set:

Still need to dig further into the data, they’ll be another post in the making if I uncover anything interesting…

    Nice result Andrew !

      I didn’t do much mate, just working with others’ data. Need to work on getting my own system more ‘popular’, don’t get anywhere near the hit-rate of these systems. Still got a long way to go
