hpfriends: real-time social data-sharing

Mark Schloesser and Johannes Gilger

Within the Honeynet Project we have used a custom publish/subscribe protocol called "hpfeeds" for sharing live data feeds from honeypots within the group. In 2012 we worked on a new backend with a new sharing and authorization model called "hpfriends". This combines the hpfeeds protocol with social trust relations to grant people access to feeds. This talk presents the protocol and system, which in our vision could enable simple and natural data sharing for the whole security community.
