The Paketto Keiretsu is a collection of tools that use new and unusual strategies for manipulating TCP/IP networks. They tap functionality within existing infrastructure and stretch protocols beyond what they were originally intended for. It includes Scanrand, an unusually fast network service and topology discovery system, Minewt, a user space NAT/MAT router, linkcat, which presents a Ethernet link to stdio, Paratrace, which traces network paths without spawning new connections, and Phentropy, which uses OpenQVIS to render arbitrary amounts of entropy from data sources in three dimensional phase space.

Release Notes: This release has OpenBSD and Solaris support. A new "Distco" mode actively discovers the distance to remote hosts via analyzing the TTL in returned TCP RST packets. There are cleanups to fix endianness issues. Libnet was patched to pack its variables. Traceroute hopcount determination is returned to analyzing returned source ports instead of returned IP ID values.
Release Notes: This release is significantly more stable and secure than the code demonstrated at Defcon X (Black Hat USA).
