Deceptive Ops & Honeynet Design

The technologies behind this Dekeneas solution, namely the low and medium-interaction honeypots and the darknet monitoring sensors allows us to better understand the regional and sectorial cyberthreats landscape and to observe new actors, new tactics and new threats.

Leveraging our advanced big-data correlation and enrichment capabilities, we are thus able to generate and deliver complex and context-aware cyber threat intelligence feeds with superior granularity on business verticals and regional activity.

These CTI (Cyber Threat Intelligence) Feeds are particularly useful in Security Operations Centers environments as it can offer foresight for threat prevention and threat mitigation, and are of great use in CTI sharing scenarios through interconnection with state-agents such as DNSC and SRI-Cyberint.

This presentation is co-presented with Andrei Bozeanu, Cybersecurity Researcher / Red Team Pentester.
