Welcome to the official site for the Cowrie SSH and Telnet Honeypot Project!

Cowrie is a medium interaction SSH and Telnet honeypot designed to log brute force attacks and the shell interaction performed by the attacker. Cowrie also functions as an SSH and telnet proxy to observe attacker behavior to another system.

Cowrie is included in Anomalis MHN. and in T-Mobile’s T-Pot.
