  • Programming with libpcapAbout libpcapPackages to installFinding and Opening interfaceCapturing packetsParsing Raw packetFiltersPcapstreamer By Mohan R
  • About libpcapPacket capture libraryWritten in CCore part of tcpdump utilityUsed by many network applicationsWiresharkSnortScapy
  • Packages to installFedora# yum install libpcap-develUbuntu# apt-get install libpcap-devGentoo# emerge net-libs/libpcap
  • Finding and Opening Interface NULL or any interface pcap_findalldev() and pcap_freealldev() pcap_lookupdev() to get default device pcap_open_live() to open capture interface snaplen parameter in pcap_open_live() promisc parameter in pcap_open_live()
  • Capturing Packetspcap_loop()(pcap_handler)() callback functionstruct pcap_pkthdr structurepcap_pkthdr.ts.tv_sec to get capturetimestamppcap_pkthdr.caplen to get captured lengthpcap_pkthdr.length to get the packet lengthRaw packet will be passed to (pcap_handler)()
  • Parsing Raw PacketsOSI modelTCP/IP protocol stackLink Headers (SLL – linux cooked,EN10MB)Network Headers (IP ICMP) ,Transport Headers (TCP,UDP)Data (Application layer protocols and Data)
  • Filterspcap_compile() functionpcap_setfilter() function“[proto] [direction] [type] [id]”“proto[offset:size]”Eg: pcapstreamer -i lo ip src host 127.0.0.1Eg: pcapstreamer -i lo “ip[12:4] = 0x7f000001”Much more inside pcap-filter(7)
  • PcapstreamerA little program to capture packetsUses libpcap libraryCapable of parsing packetsCan filter packets with pcap-filter rulesGit source: https://github.com/mohan43u/pcapstreamer.gitManual Page: http://mohan43u.github.com/pcapstreamer
