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.
