The Japanese Honeynet Project

The Japanese Honeynet Project is a non-profit research organization focusing on honeynet technologies. The project is mainly operated by a security team of Koike Laboratory in Graduate School of Information Systems at University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan, and we also have many collaborators from other universities such as Keio University, and some research laboratories and companies.

The main goals of the project is to study motivations and tools of blackhats, to develop surrounding technologies of honeynet, and to help improving overall security in Japan as well as the World.

The Japanese Honeynet Project started at 2002 by implementing and deploying Gen I honeynet. Until now, the project have been actively working on the honeynet, such as translating Lance Spitzner's excellent book "Honeypots: Tracking Hackers" into Japanese, translating The Honeynet Project's useful whitepapers "Know Your Enemy" series into Japanese, implementing and deploying several honeynets on Internet, and keeping them monitoring.
