Chameleon : Customizable Honeypots For Monitoring Network Traffic

Chameleon is a customizable honeypots for monitoring network traffic, bots activities and username\password credentials (DNS, HTTP Proxy, HTTP, HTTPS, SSH, POP3, IMAP, STMP, RDP, VNC, SMB, SOCKS5, Redis, TELNET and Postgres and MySQL).

Grafana Interface

NMAP Scan

Credentials Monitoring

General Features

  • Modular approach (honeypots run as scripts or imported as objects)
  • Most honeypots serve as servers (Only a few that emulate the application layer protocols)
  • Settings servers with username, password and banner (Default username and password are test)
  • ICMP, DNS TCP and UDP payloads are parsed and check against common patterns
  • Visualized Grafana interfaces for monitoring the results (Filter by IP – default is all)
  • Unstructured and structured logs are parsed and inserted into Postgres
  • All honeypots contain clients for testing the servers
  • All ports are opened and monitored by default
  • Easy automation and can be deployed on AWS ec2

Install & Run

  • On ubuntu 18 or 19 System (Auto-configure)

git clone https://github.com/qeeqbox/chameleon.git
cd chameleon
chmod +x ./run.sh
./run.sh auto_configure

The Grafana interface http://localhost:3000 will open automatically after finishing the initialization process (username is changeme457f6460cb287 and passowrd is changemed23b8cc6a20e0). If you don’t see Chameleon dashboard, click on the search icon in the left bar and add it.

Wait for a few seconds until honeypot shows the IP address


honeypot_1 | Your IP: 172.19.0.3
honeypot_1 | Your MAC: 09:45:aa:23:10:03

You can interact with the honeypot from your local system

ping 172.19.0.3
or run any network tool against it
nmap 172.19.0.3

  • On ubuntu 18 or 19 System (Auto-configure test)

git clone https://github.com/qeeqbox/chameleon.git
cd chameleon
chmod +x ./run.sh
./run.sh auto_configure_test

The Grafana interface http://localhost:3000 will open automatically after finishing the initialization process (username is admin and passowrd is admin). If you don’t see Chameleon dashboard, click on the search icon in the left bar and add it

  • Or, import your desired non-blocking server as object (SSH Server)
copy ssh_server.py to your folder
# ip= String E.g. 0.0.0.0
# port= Int E.g. 9999
# username= String E.g. Test
# password= String E.g. Test
# mocking= Boolean or String E.g OpenSSH 7.0
# logs= String E.g db, terminal or all
# --------------------------------------------------------------------
# always remember to add process=true to run_server() for non-blocking

from ssh_server import QSSHServer
qsshserver = QSSHServer(port=9999)
qsshserver.run_server(process=True)
qsshserver.test_server(port=9999)
qsshserver.kill_server()

ssh test@127.0.0.1

INFO:chameleonlogger:[‘servers’, {‘status’: ‘success’, ‘username’: ‘test’, ‘ip’: ‘127.0.0.1’, ‘server’: ‘ssh_server’, ‘action’: ‘login’, ‘password’: ‘test’, ‘port’: 38696}]

  • Or, docker stanalone simple

git clone https://github.com/qeeqbox/chameleon.git
cd chameleon
#choose which honeypot http, https, ssh etc and use -p in docker for the ports
docker build -t honeypot ./honeypot/. && docker run -p 9999:9999 -p 9998:9998 -it honeypot –mode normal –servers “ssh:9999 http:9998”
