Sparrowhawk is keystroke logging (keylogger) software for FreeBSD and other Unix terminals. It is designed to output logged keystrokes in a unified format.
Currently Supported Operating Systems:
FreeBSD (8.0 and 8.2)
Support for Operating Systems in Development:
Linux on x86 32-bit, x86 64-bit SPARC 64-bit architectures
Keystroke logging, often referred to as keylogging or keyboard capturing, is the action of recording (logging) the keys pressed on a keyboard, typically covertly, so that the person using the keyboard is unaware that their actions are being monitored. Keyloggers can be used to intercept typed information, login credentials and other sensitive information, before it is encrypted and transmitted.
SparrowHawk is a kernel Based keystroke logger. It operates on the target machine by obtaining root access to hide itself in the OS and intercepts keystrokes that pass through the kernel. Operating at the kernel level makes SparrowHawk difficult to detect, especially for user-mode applications that don't have root access.
FreeBSD is a free and open source Unix-like operating system descended from Research Unix via the Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD). It is a direct descendant of BSD, which was historically also called "BSD Unix" or "Berkeley Unix". The first version of FreeBSD was released in 1993, and today FreeBSD is the most widely used open-source BSD distribution, accounting for more than three-quarters of all installed systems running open-source BSD derivatives.
