Cybil code: G0127

Status: Finished

From: Apr 2016

To: Mar 2018








This project supported the protection of India’s Critical Information Infrastructure by helping an Indian not-for-profit, Cyber Peace Foundation (CPF), collect and report information on attack methodologies using a network of honeypots and sensors.  CPF’s “e-Kawach – the e-shield for National and State Cybersecurity” project has 24 honeypots across the country. The objective is to setup a comprehensive public network and sensors to capture and analyse internet attack traffic and build credible intelligence in the domain of cyber security pertaining to critical infrastructure, which would be then shared with appropriate government and public agencies in the country. A C&C(Command and Controle) has been setup in Ranchi and the hardware is in place to pull logs and data from all over the backend analytics and reporting system is been developed. [Website –]
