Call for volunteers - Web Honeypot Project

At SANS Internet Storm Center, we are always researching and monitoring the latest trends of attacks on the Internet. We are currently developing a web honeypot project similar to the Dshield model. The launch time is a few months away and the project is in need of volunteer researchers to help get thru the beta phase.

Here are the technical skillsets we need

  • PHP coding
  • SQL
  • Apache
  • Understanding of HTTP
  • IIS
  • Technical writing (documentation)
  • Experience with various Opensource web applications

We expect each volunteer to put in about 70 total hours in the next 3 months. Each volunteer should have at least 3-4 skills from the above list to be effective in the project. If you think you can contribute to this project, please send us an Email at with "Web Honeypot volunteer" as subject line. Please include one short paragraph about your background and skillset.

UPDATE - Dec 4th: Thanks for all the volunteers who signed up. We have enough volunteers to get this project going for the moment. It is likely that we will recruit more volunteers in a few months. Stay tuned if you are interested.

I will be teaching next: Leading Cloud Security Design and Implementation - SANS Stay Sharp: Sep 2021
