These are the tools that will be discussed. Remember, this is a class on TCP/IP -- tools are not the primary focus. However, I needed something to generate interesting traffic.
- Dsniff suite
- Gont attacks
The traces we will analyze are available at www.taosecurity.com/taosecurity_tws_v1_traces.zip. You will need to have Ethereal, Wireshark, or a similar protocol analyzer installed to review the traces. Tcpdump might be somewhat limited for this class but you can at least inspect packets with it.
