Welcome to the Central Hub
Throughout the years different projects and initiatives were started like the YouTube or Honey project. Most projects started out of curiosity with the intention to learn from. The Central Hub is the place where all the projects and initiatives under the Christiaan008 network come together.
Share, collaborate and have fun
These three elements are at the heart of the featured projects and are sometimes forgotten.
Share, sharing information is what helps people to learn and innovate. By starting sharing videos on YouTube that were already publicly available on the ‘net’ a concentrated platform was build. People can learn from the knowledge that is shared in the videos.
During the years a lot of people have shared their knowledge in comments making the videos more valuable. Different schools and universities across the world use the shared videos to educate their students.
Sharing information that was collected via the honeypots is another example of knowledge sharing. By sharing information about the attacks such as tried login attempts and the origin of an attack on a daily basis it’s possible to learn quickly from attacks on the internet. When possible recorded sessions were posted to YouTube to learn from.
Collaborate, by collaborations people can achieve great things when working towards a common goal. Throughout the years different people helped to improve the YouTube channel or other projects, some YouTubers even offered to help out. Thanks to everyone who helped, you know who you are.
The Christiaan008 YouTube channel helped featuring great created content. Via the channel I started to collaborate with different security conferences and YouTubers which made it possible to share new content. It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
Have fun, something that is very important and can be really powerful. Don’t forget to have fun in what you do, when you have fun and are passionate about something it helps you to do the things you couldn’t imagine you can do. If you love the things you do you won’t get tired easy. Having fun also reflects on your work and people will notice it.
Find out what you love and Go For It!

The Honey project started in 2013 as a way to learn more about honeypots and attacks happening on the ‘net’. For more then a year 2 honeypots have been running and postings of daily activities are available on the old website. A new interface to come with a redesign of the website.
The wiki is meant to share all the information related to building this website and underlaying systems, but also to share how to build your own news engine or set-up your own honeypots. More content will be added soon.
Blogging about the different experiences related to building this website, the YouTube channel, CIC News engine and the honeypots.
