social network honeypots


As part of the research project "Detecting APTs Targeting Network Devices" a social network honeypot platform for detecting attackers during the reconnaissance phase was implemented. Key competence/ functionalities of the platform include: collecting information from SNs, generating and monitor artificial profiles, and wiring profiles within the social network.
