Instavue extracts the Instaviz diagrams from the user's iPhone or iPod Touch backups. The user can then choose to print the diagrams or export them to any of these vector and bitmap formats: BMP, EPS, GIF, Graphviz, JPEG, PNG, PostScript, SVG, TIFF, Visio VDX, or VML. Mac users can also export to these additional formats: JPEG2000, OpenEXR, Photoshop, PDF, Quickdraw, Silicon Graphics or TGA. Windows users can also export to the EMF (Enhanced Metafile) format.
Pkviz is a tool for plotting and cycling through and animating a series of network packets captured by tcpdump. What makes it unique is that the packets’ structure is visualized, not any labels and not time itself. Pkviz takes each byte in a packet and plots it out end-to-end, left-to-right, from the first byte to the last. How high the dot gets plotted depends on the value of the byte: bytes with a value of 0 are at the bottom and those which are 255 (0xff) – the maximum value of a byte – get plotted at the top. This might not be interesting for one packet, but that changes when you start looking at thousands of packets. Pkviz can cycle through thousands of packets in the set so you can see what happened on the wire.
NoSpex is a Python scripted realtime graphing library designed to be easily employed by security consultants and reverse engineers for teasing apart and depicting the relationships between processes in a system under analysis. It is realtime in the sense that the graph is continuously rendered and animated as new relationships are introduced. It is easily employed in the sense that all the bookkeeping is done by the Python module and exposed using a simple thread-safe API. NoSpex relies on the SDL graphic library for a frame buffer and Cairo for rendering to the frame buffer. This combination produces a fast and visually elegant graph that should be portable wherever SDL and Cairo can be found.
