KFSensor is a Windows based honeypot Intrusion Detection System (IDS).
It acts as a honeypot to attract and detect hackers and worms by simulating vulnerable system services and trojans.
By acting as a decoy server it can divert attacks from critical systems and provide a higher level of information than can be achieved by using firewalls and NIDS alone.
KFSensor is designed for use in a Windows based corporate environment and contains many innovative and unique features such as remote management, a Snort compatible signature engine and emulations of Windows networking protocols.
With its GUI based management console, extensive documentation and low maintenance, KFSensor provides a cost effective way of improving an organization's network security.
