tcpreplay - Pcap editing and replay tools for *NIX and Windows - Users please download source from

Tcpreplay is a suite of GPLv3 licensed utilities for UNIX (and Win32 under Cygwin) operating systems for editing and replaying network traffic which was previously captured by tools like tcpdump and Ethereal/Wireshark. It allows you to classify traffic as client or server, rewrite Layer 2, 3 and 4 packets and finally replay the traffic back onto the network and through other devices such as switches, routers, firewalls, NIDS and IPS's. Tcpreplay supports both single and dual NIC modes for testing both sniffing and in-line devices.Tcpreplay is used by numerous firewall, IDS, IPS, NetFlow and other networking vendors, enterprises, universities, labs and open source projects. If your organization uses Tcpreplay, please let us know who you are and what you use it for so that I can continue to add features which are useful.

zarp - Network Attack Tool

Zarp is a network attack tool centered around the exploitation of local networks. This does not include system exploitation, but rather abusing networking protocols and stacks to take over, infiltrate, and knock out. Sessions can be managed to quickly poison and sniff multiple systems at once, dumping sensitive information automatically or to the attacker directly. Various sniffers are included to automatically parse usernames and passwords from various protocols, as well as view HTTP traffic and more. DoS attacks are included to knock out various systems and applications. These tools open up the possibility for very complex attack scenarios on live networks quickly, cleanly, and quietly. The long-term goal of zarp is to become the master command center of a network; to provide a modular, well-defined framework that provides a powerful overview and in-depth analysis of an entire network. This will come to light with the future inclusion of a web application front-end, which acts as the television screen, whereas the CLI interface will be the remote. This will provide network topology reports, host relationships, and more. zarp aims to be your window into the potential exploitability of a network and its hosts, not an exploitation platform itself; it is the manipulation of relationships and trust felt within local intranets. Look for zeb, the web-app frontend to zarp, sometime in the future.
