TCPDump - Network Packet Analyzer

  •        820

TCPDump, a powerful command-line packet analyzer; and libpcap, a portable C/C++ library for network traffic capture. It prints out a description of the contents of packets on a network interface that match the boolean expression. The Packet Capture library provides a high level interface to packet capture systems. All packets on the network, even those destined for other hosts, are accessible through this mechanism.

wireshark - Read-only mirror of Wireshark's Git repository

  •    C

Wireshark is a network traffic analyzer, or "sniffer", for Unix and Unix-like operating systems. It uses Qt, a graphical user interface library, and libpcap, a packet capture and filtering library. The Wireshark distribution also comes with TShark, which is a line-oriented sniffer (similar to Sun's snoop, or tcpdump) that uses the same dissection, capture-file reading and writing, and packet filtering code as Wireshark, and with editcap, which is a program to read capture files and write the packets from that capture file, possibly in a different capture file format, and with some packets possibly removed from the capture.

netsniff-ng - The packet sniffing beast

  •    C

netsniff-ng is a free Linux networking toolkit, a Swiss army knife for your daily Linux network plumbing if you will. Its gain of performance is reached by 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.

scapy - Scapy: the Python-based interactive packet manipulation program & library

  •    Python

Scapy is a powerful Python-based interactive packet manipulation program and library. It is able to forge or decode packets of a wide number of protocols, send them on the wire, capture them, store or read them using pcap files, match requests and replies, and much more. It is designed to allow fast packet prototyping by using default values that work.

Divert - Windows Packet Divert

  •    C

Windows Packet Divert (WinDivert) is a user-mode packet interception library for Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. WinDivert enables user-mode capturing/modifying/dropping of network packets sent to/from the Windows network stack. In summary, WinDivert can Capture network packets, Filter/drop network packets, Sniff network packets, (re)inject network packets, modify network packets. It can be used to implement user-mode packet filters, sniffers, firewalls, NATs, VPNs, IDSs, tunneling applications, etc.

DPDK - Data Plan Development Kit

  •    C

DPDK is a set of libraries and drivers for fast packet processing. It was designed to run on any processors. The first supported CPU was Intel x86 and it is now extended to IBM Power 8, EZchip TILE-Gx and ARM. These libraries can be used to receive and send packets within the minimum number of CPU cycles (usually less than 80 cycles), develop fast packet capture algorithms (tcpdump-like) and run third-party fast path stacks.

stenographer - Stenographer is a packet capture solution which aims to quickly spool all packets to disk, then provide simple, fast access to subsets of those packets

  •    Go

Stenographer is a full-packet-capture utility for buffering packets to disk for intrusion detection and incident response purposes. It provides a high-performance implementation of NIC-to-disk packet writing, handles deleting those files as disk fills up, and provides methods for reading back specific sets of packets quickly and easily.It’s fast because it doesn’t do this.  Even with the very minimal, single-pass processing of packets we do, processing ~1Gbps for indexing alone can take >75% of a single core.
