HSN2 Virtual Appliance

If you just want to test Honeyspider Network, you can download virtual appliance (in .ova format) here. After you import it to a virtualization software (we tested it on VirtualBox 4.2.6) you will notice that there are two network interfaces configured: one is host-only and the other one is configured to be the external one and uses NAT. In order to test Honeyspider Network just do this steps:

  1. Boot up your virtual machine.

  2. Connect through the SSH (login: root, password: RootPassword).

  3. Start Honeyspider using ./ script.

  4. Start GUI scheduler using python /var/www/hsn2/etc/ start.

  5. Using your favorite browser go to the Virtual Machine IP address.

Table below present all the password you will need to use this virtual machine.
