Login sequence analysis

We detect possible botnets by applying a 'Density-based spatial clustering of applications with noise (DBSCAN)' machine learning algorithm to the recorded distinct login sequences. Hosts listed here perform similar attacks. We omit botnets with less than 8 hosts recorded for a better overview.

Mesa SSH Honeypot


Welcome to our SSH honeypot, where we provide insights into the world of cybersecurity by analyzing and presenting data collected from SSH honeypots. At our core, we're dedicated to understanding and mitigating the risks associated with unauthorized access attempts and malicious activities targeting SSH services.

What is an SSH Honeypot?

An SSH honeypot is a decoy system designed to lure in potential attackers who are scanning the internet for vulnerable SSH servers. These honeypots simulate real SSH services, logging connection attempts and interactions made by unauthorized users. By monitoring these interactions, we gain valuable insights into the tactics, techniques, and procedures employed by malicious actors.


Our goal is to leverage the data collected from SSH honeypots to enhance cybersecurity awareness and foster a safer online environment. We believe that by studying and understanding the behaviors of attackers, we can develop better strategies to defend against cyber threats and protect digital assets.
