Packet Analyzers For Linux

Undefined

A packet analyzer (also known as a packet sniffer) is a computer program or piece of computer hardware that can intercept and log traffic that passes over a digital network or part of a network.

Packet capturing is the process of intercepting and logging data traffic and as data streams flow across the network, the sniffer captures each packet and, if needed, decodes the packet's raw data.

This will show you the values of various fields in the packet, and then it analyzes its content according to the appropriate RFC or other specifications. On wired broadcast LANs, such as the Ethernet, Token Ring, and FDDI networks, depending on how the network structure is built "hub or switch".

With a packet analyzer you can capture traffic on all or parts of the network from a single machine connected to the network.


If you want to intercept traffic on wireless networks you need a wireless analyzer or WiFi analyzer.

Below you will find software to perform these tasks.
