modpot: Modular web-application honeypot platform


modpot is a modular web application honeypot framework written in Golang and making use of the gin framework. It is the antithesis to honeydet in many ways and allows the user to deploy simple html/js honeypots that mimic web applications to detect requests and form entries that are related to attacks. Responders offer a modular capacity for automation and logging pipelines and are not limited by programming language. modpot is best utilised alongside honeypage a tool that creates flattened single html file versions of web applications, which makes them portable and easy to use with modpot.
