• T-Pot Version 24.04 released

      We are proud to announce the release of T-Pot 24.04! T-Pot 24.04 marks probably the largest change in the history of the project. While most of the changes have been made to the underlying platform some changes will be standing out in particular - a T-Pot ISO image will no longer be provided with the benefit that T-Pot will now run on multiple Linux distributions (Alma Linux, Debian, Fedora, OpenSuse, Raspbian, Rocky Linux, Ubuntu), Raspberry Pi (optimized) and macOS / Windows (limited).

    • Potherder: a Honeypot Story

      It’s been seven years now that I started to contribute to the setup of Deutsche Telekom’s Early Warning System which is running multiple honeypots all over the globe and I would like to share my personal view on the history of the project, its internal goals and its achievements.

      I still remember the first group meeting with my department in November 2010. It was my third day at the new employment in the team “Security of Office and Portals” and I happened to start my new career path all dressed up, because I thought this was the way to go in a large corporation. Turns out I was wrong about this, some people were more technical than I initially thought and it took some time to lose the first impression I made wearing a suit…

    • Updated Docker Ubuntu Repository for T-Pot

      Last spring we released T-Pot and ever since, Docker evolved rapidly with new versions, new features, and eventually a new repository. With regards to early releases of T-Pot and the fast development of Docker, we manually pinned the Docker versions used to the 1.5.x and 1.6.x branches. Now, with the latest Docker releases and Dockers’ switch to a new repository for Ubuntu (and deprecating the one we have been using), we updated the T-Pot ISO and the GitHub project accordingly.

    • Full Overview about all of Deutsche Telekom's Honeypot Projects

      Over the time, we developed a number of projects, which we mostly published on Github.

      Parts of them were developed in “one day a month” projects, others in spare time of dedicated persons. Our “one day a month” approach from the central security organization basically means, that the security employees can work one day a month on a technical topic, aside from day-to-day business. The topic must be somehow related to their work, but does not necessarily have to be security-focussed.

    • Introduction to Deutsche Telekom's Honeypot Project

      Deutsche Telekom’s honeypot project was started in 2010 by a small group of enthusiasts. We initially started with Lukas Rist’s great Glastopf web honeypot and soon added further honeypot daemons like kippo, honeytrap and dionaea. Over the next years we deployed more and more honeypots.
