VoIP Honey - a comprehensive VoIP honeypot

Easy to use Unix tracking hackers system



Voice over IP (VoIP) is a general term for a family of transmission technologies for delivery of voice communications over IP networks such as the Internet or other packet-switched networks. Other terms frequently encountered and synonymous with VoIP are IP telephony, Internet telephony, voice over broadband (VoBB), broadband telephony, and broadband phone.


In computer terminology, a honeypot is a trap set to detect, deflect, or in some manner counteract attempts at unauthorized use of information systems. Generally it consists of a computer, data, or a network site that appears to be part of a network, but is actually isolated, (un)protected, and monitored, and which seems to contain information or a resource of value to attackers.

VoIP Honey = VoIP + Honeypot


VoIP Honey Project is hosted on Sourceforge.net, over there you can find latest release and many other downloads.
Browse VoIP Honey files.


You can download development snapshots from subversion repository. Checkout full source code by issuing this command:
svn co https://voiphoney.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/voiphoney/voiphoney


Use autogen.sh for generating configure script on your system, run configure script to generate appropiate Makefiles for your sytem. Build, install and let us know if everything went fine (or not).
You will need autotools and readline, pcap, boost thread libraries on your system for building VoIP Honey.
ATTENTION: VoIP Honey project is in a very basic early stage and we only recommend use it for testing honeywall behavior in strictly controlled network environments without direct Internet connection (in example virtual machines), when this will be possible make sure that we will be the first ones to do it assuming this risk. You should also aware that running a honeypot can have legal issues in some countries.


VoIP Honey project provides a set of tools for building an entire honeynet, thus includes honeywall and honeypot emulating VoIP environments such as Asterisk PBX or OpenSer with fully configurable connections.

VoIP Honey project details

Command Line Interface

VoIP Honey provides it's users with a very nice bash-like command line interface based on ncurses, with history and auto-complete features. Also offers comprehensive well-structured and full configurable debug information:


Two or more honeypots on a network form a honeynet. Typically, a honeynet is used for monitoring a larger and/or more diverse network in which one honeypot may not be sufficient. Honeynets and honeypots are usually implemented as parts of larger network intrusion-detection systems. A honeyfarm is a centralized collection of honeypots and analysis tools.
