There’s a new (beta) release of the Honeynet Project’s “Honeywall” CDROM out. This release (1.3b) fixes some bugs but the main change is a move from the no longer supported Fedora Core 6 platform to CentOS 5. This should give us less work keeping the base platform up to date and more time to work on adding cool new features 🙂
We’ve also moving to a more open development model for the CDROM. Although it’s always been GPL’d, the development processes has been closed and it’s been hard for outsiders to add features/hack code. I’m pleased to say that that’s now changed, and there’s a new Trac site with a svn tree, wiki and all the usual stuff. The Honeywall public mailing list is also still available.
Cool stuff that will be coming in the future includes a move to hflow2 for better flow decoding and analysis and changes to the build processes to make it easier to use.
