Latest commit fe3ce10 Sep 17, 2013


HoneyMap is a web application which visualizes a live stream of GPS locations on a SVG world map. In principle, it can be used with any stream of GPS data. For our application, we use honeypot captures, provided by several hpfeeds from the Honeynet Project. For more information on our instance of HoneyMap, see HoneyMap - Visualizing Worldwide Attacks in Real-Time.

Front-end code is written in CoffeeScript and makes use of SockJS (HTML5 websockets), jQuery, jVectorMap and jQuery Transit (CSS3 animations).

Back-end code is written in Go and makes use of sockjs-go and go-hpfeeds.

(The earliest version of HoneyMap was using node.js instead of Go and instead of SockJS.)
