sshesame is an easy to set up and use SSH honeypot, a fake SSH server that lets anyone in and logs their activity.
It accepts and logs SSH connections and activity (channels, requests), without doing anything on the host (e.g. executing commands, making network requests).
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install sshesame, simply use the following command:
