This is a joint initiative by CEDIA and The Shadowserver Foundation that will deploy a large-scale honeypot sensor network in Latin America and the Caribbean, building upon the technology developed by Shadowserver for automating honeypot deployments and CEDIA’s CSIRT expertise. The network will enable a unique view of IoT threats in the region and, together with a communications campaign, it will lead to a reduction in infected devices. The data produced will be shared with 21 national CSIRTs and 235 network owners in the region, as well as with a total 109 national CSIRTs and 5,000+ network owners worldwide via Shadowserver’s daily remediation feeds. The project will utilize existing open source IoT related honeypots and deploy them on a large scale using Shadowserver’s framework. In addition, CEDIA will lead a communications campaign including recommendations on how to identify and remediate these types of threats and target the most affected ISPs with one-on-one follow-up. The project will rely on a combination of paid VPS services and donated nodes from third parties. At least 50 sensors will be placed in 15 countries.
