Portspoof is a small utility with the goal to make port scanning by other much harder. It achieves this by showing all configured TCP ports to be in the 'open' state instead of closed or filter. The related ports are also emulating valid services. This way a port scan on the system will reveal many open ports and look to have legitimate services running.

Author and Maintainers

Portspoof is under development by Piotr Duszynski.
