|Short description||high performance GNU/Linux network sniffer for packet inspection.|
|Full description||Basically it is similar to analyzers like tcpdump, but without the need to perform system calls for fetching network packets. A memory mapped area within kernelspace will be used for accessing packets, thus there is no requirement for copying them to userspace ('zero-copy' mechanism). For this purpose netsniff-ng is libpcap independent, but nevertheless supports the pcap file format for capturing, replaying and performing offline-analysis of pcap dumps. Furthermore we are focussing on building a robust, clean and secure analyzer and utilities that complete netsniff-ng as a support for penetration testing.|
netsniff-ng can be used for protocol analysis, reverse engineering and network debugging.
