Artillery 0.1 alpha - New tool for Linux Protection by ReL1K
A new Tool "Artillery" - for Linux Protection has been Released by ReL1K (Founder DerbyCon, Creator of the Social-Engineer Toolkit). It’s written in Python and completely open-source. Artillery is a combination of a honeypot, file monitoring and integrity, alerting, and brute force prevention tool. It’s extremely light weight, has multiple different methods for detecting specific attacks and eventually will also notify you of insecure nix configurations.
Features:

  • If anyone decides to port scan or touch those ports, they are blacklisted immediately and permanently.
  • It’s multi-threaded and can handle as many connections thrown at it.
  • Monitor file integrity leveraging sha-512 database
  • Keeps track of all system files and if anything changes
  • Artillery also monitors the SSH logs, and the event of a brute force attack, blacklists the host forever
