shelLM: creating on-the-fly believable honeypot environments with LLMs

Muris Sladić, Veronica Valeros, Carlos Catania, Sebastian Garcia

  • Most existing honeypots lack the realism to engage human attackers, limiting their effectiveness.
  • We propose a novel method to create dynamic and realistic software honeypots based on Large Language Models (LLMs).
  • shelLM simulates on-the-fly dynamic and believable Linux terminal environments accessible through SSH.
  • Preliminary results indicate that LLMs can create honeypots capable of addressing limitations with static responses and similar constraints that are present in other honeypot software.

Santiago Abastante

    • Cloud incident response can be daunting, requiring a deep grasp of various technologies. Dredge is an Open Source kit for incident responders allowing them to forget about cloud specifics and focus on the response.




Innovations from SURBL Domain Reputation: New Sublists and API

Arnie Bjorklund & Brooke Bjorklund

  • New Sublists to identify click-tracking spam domains. Click tracking domains allow cybercriminals / spammers to monitor who is interacting with their emails.
  • New sublists to identify disposable domains. The Disposable Domains sublist identifies domains used for disposable emails (used only during signup). If someone using this kind of domain to sign up for a service, they are most likely trying to hide their true identity. It is recommended to identify disposable domains being used to vet new sign ups and ensure their validity.
  • Overview of new API for consuming domain reputation data from SURBL
    Search listings by hash, URI, and domain.
  • Historical domain listing data - find historical data for a domain up to 12 months.

Arnie Bjorklund & Brooke Bjorklund

  • Rspamd allows messages to be evaluated through regular expressions, statistical analysis, and custom services including fuzzy hash data, URL blocklists, and more.
  • Content scan features allow Rspamd to search for specific patterns in messages, including text parts, headers, and raw content.
  • New premium datasets, including fuzzy hash data, email and URL blocklists, available to increase the effectiveness of the platform.
  • Rspamd hash data for fuzzing matching has increased # of hits by 2-5x for some users.


What is a poster session?

You may have heard of poster sessions – they are common at academic/scientific conferences and are a great way to engage with your peers, share ideas, get feedback, and learn, all in an informal setting. A poster session is a room in which multiple presenters stand next to posters that outline their topic in brief. Delegates wander around the room reading the posters and stopping to talk to the presenters when they have questions or want more information - each presenter being ready to elaborate on their poster with a brief (less than 5 minutes) explanation.
