Welcome to Thug Distributed documentation!

ThugD stands for Thug Distributed Task Queuing Project. It is developed under The Honeynet Project organization as a GSoC Project. It is a Distributed Version of the existing Thug Project.

ThugD is developed using Celery [1] for Distributing tasks(URLs) among the workers. While RabbitMQ [2] and Redis [3] works as the brokers in it. It also uses Team Cymru Community Services [4] and PyDNS [5] to query its services.
