The Internet Storm Center's DShield project has been collecting data and providing metrics about cyberattacks since 2000. DShield's source of data has been provided largely through firewall logs submitted by the community. Over the last two years however, the DShield project has been developing a new sensor - a medium interaction honeypot designed to run on inexpensive platforms as resource limited as a Raspberry Pi. This talk will introduce the DShield honeypot sensor, explain how it can be installed on a Raspberry Pi or in a free-tier instance in AWS, and review the kinds of excellent data which can be observed through such a sensor. You will be able to contribute to the greater good of the security research community - perhaps even jump start your own security research - by learning how to run a DShield honeypot sensor.
