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 isc@sans.org 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.
