Netsniff-ng : The Packet Sniffing Beast.
« on: April 28, 2018, 01:10:14 pm »
Netsniff-ng is a free, performant Linux network analyzer and networking toolkit. It is also known as the Swiss army knife for network packets. The gain of performance is reached by built-in zero-copy mechanisms, so that on packet reception and transmission the kernel does not need to copy packets from kernel space to user space, and vice versa The netsniff-ng toolkit’s primary usage goal is to facilitate a network developer’s / hacker’s daily Linux plumbing. It can be used for network development, debugging, analysis, auditing or network reconnaissance.

The netsniff-ng toolkit's primary usage goal is to facilitate a network developer's / hacker's daily Linux plumbing. It can be used for network development, debugging, analysis, auditing or network reconnaissance. It consists of the following fixed set of utilities:

  * netsniff-ng: a zero-copy packet analyzer, pcap capturing/replaying tool
  * trafgen: a multithreaded low-level zero-copy network packet generator
  * mausezahn: high-level packet generator for appliances with Cisco-CLI
  * ifpps: a top-like kernel networking and system statistics tool
  * curvetun: a lightweight curve25519-based multiuser IP tunnel
  * astraceroute: an autonomous system trace route and DPI testing utility
  * flowtop: a top-like netfilter connection tracking tool
  * bpfc: a [seccomp-]BPF (Berkeley packet filter) compiler, JIT disassembler
