Changes in Sinkhole and Honeypot Report Types and Formats

April 1, 2021
Over the years, Shadowserver’s report list has grown considerably from when we originally started. When some of these reports were originally set up, the requirements were different to those needed today. We have therefore decided to implement changes with some of the existing report types, especially those related to our sinkholes and honeypots, as well as remove some legacy reports. Changes will come into effect on 2021-06-01. On that day, the old reports will cease and only the new equivalents will be sent out. Until that time, starting 2021-04-05 both the old reports and new reports will function in parallel.

Can you help Shadowserver sign up more countries/networks in Africa and the Info-Pacific to receive our free daily network reports and help secure the Internet? We are running a UK FCDO funded surge in Feb/March 2021, aimed at increasing outreach and expanding our honeypot sensor network in those regions. We are seeking introductions, contacts and hosting so please get in touch if you can help us achieve these goals.

Beyond the SISSDEN event horizon

October 1, 2019
Between May 2016 and April 2019, The Shadowserver Foundation participated in the SISSDEN EU Horizon 2020 project. The main goal of the project was to improve the cybersecurity posture of EU entities and end users through the development of situational awareness and sharing of actionable information. It exceeded KPIs, with 257 sensors in 59 countries, using 974 IP addresses across 119 ASNs and 383 unique /24 (Class C) networks, and collected 31TB of threat data. This blog post provides detail on Shadowserver's role in SISSDEN, including a 3 minute explainer video.
