Honeyport Python Script with Local Firewall and Dome9 Support

Icon-PythonFollowing on from my linux bash honeyport script (read this first if you don’t know what a Honeyport is), I wanted to write a script that works across platforms to accept connections on a given port and block that IP using the local firewall – IPFW on Mac OS X, iptables on Linux, or Windows Firewall – or using the Dome9 service (I’m hoping to add Unix support soon).

I chose to write this one in Python as the cross-platform language of choice, and it’s compatible with Python 2.7 to 3.4. One feature of this script is that you can optionally configure it to run another Python script whenever a client connects to the honeyport. The client’s IP will be passed to the called script as an argument, allowing you to do whatever you want with it. The script’s output is then sent back to the connected client before they are blacklisted.

Check it out on GitHub, improvements and additional ideas are welcome!
