Live Packet Sniffing With an Embedded Module

Now Streaming!

SniPCAP is improved and now streaming!

As it was mentioned in the first article, SniPCAP had a lot of room to improve on. The following lists the basic functionalities of SniPCAP:

  • audit information
  • monitor bandwidth usage
  • diagnose problems or bottlenecks in the network
  • discover devices on the network
  • detect network intrusion through packet analysis
  • convert network traffic into a user readable format
  • log traffic

The previous version of SniPCAP was only a minimum product that temporarily captured a small amount of data; increased scalability and better usability was a necessity (more details on the first part of this project could be found here). This article shows the development of a more scalable product on the NetBurner Module.
