A module to add a dionaea honeypot

Beginning with mhn_dionaea

    hpf_server => 'mhn.local',
    hpf_id     => '91ded218-eaec-11e9-954a-000c299b8253',
    hpf_secret => 'LId9U19VHuQOUnTU',


In addition to the hpf_server, hpf_id and hpf_secret, you can also set the hpf_port:

    hpf_server => 'mhn.local',
    hpf_id     => '91ded218-eaec-11e9-954a-000c299b8253',
    hpf_secret => 'LId9U19VHuQOUnTU',
    hpf_port   => 2187,

By default, the mhn_dionaea resource only enables the ftp, smb and http services. You can enable any of the available services simply by passing an array of those you want enabled. Note that any service not declared will be disabled.

    hpf_server => 'mhn.local',
    hpf_id     => '91ded218-eaec-11e9-954a-000c299b8253',
    hpf_secret => 'LId9U19VHuQOUnTU',
    services   => ['memcache','mongo','mssql'],





The HPFeeds server, in the intended use-case this will be the MHN server.


The port where your HPF server accepts reports.

Defaults to 10000


The UUID that this honeypot will report as to the HPF server.


The secret that this honeypot will use to communicate with the HPF server.


An array containing all the services that will be enabled. Its type is Array[Enum['blackhole','ftp','memcache','mongo','mssql','pptp','smb','upnp','epmap','http','mirror','mqtt','mysql','sip','tftp']]


mhn_dionaea can't manage the firewall to enable ports for either the blackhole or mirror services. If you want to use those, you have to enable the required ports elsewhere.

This module is only tested con CentOS7. It might work on other RHEL7 based distros but there are no warranties.
