pyoui is a console Python program that lets you know which vendor has made an Ethernet/Bluetooth device. OUI stands for Organizationally Unique Identifier. In every electronic device that has a MAC address, the first (most weighted) 24 bits are the OUI, and they identify the vendor of that device. When you are sniffing network traffic, you may be interested in which network cards are active, or even if a MAC address is faked. This program is intended to help you with such things.
Ostinato is a network packet and traffic generator and analyzer with a friendly GUI. It aims to be "Wireshark in Reverse" and thus become complementary to Wireshark. It features custom packet crafting with editing of any field for several protocols: Ethernet, 802.3, LLC SNAP, VLAN (with Q-in-Q), ARP, IPv4, IPv6, IP-in-IP a.k.a IP Tunneling, TCP, UDP, ICMPv4, ICMPv6, IGMP, MLD, HTTP, SIP, RTSP, NNTP, etc. It is useful for both functional and performance testing.
UDP Test is a simple UDP server and client bundled into a single script. It is designed to be used as a network testing tool, and it detects packet loss and corruption. UDP is a lossy network transport in that UDP packets may be dropped if there is not enough capacity to send them. UDP is typically used in real-time scenarios such as voice and video chat. udptest.rb is designed to be as simple as possible. It bounces small packets from the client to the server and back again. If the packet checksum is incorrect at any point, the script exits with an error. This type of script is designed to detect faulty hardware and errors in configuration, as well as network performance.
Chaosmap is an information gathering tool and DNS, Whois, and Web server scanner. It can be used to look up DNS names with a dictionary with or without using a salt. Salting for DNS means it will append numbers from 1-9 to the name in the dictionary with or without a - and _ or a leading 0. Salting for Web stuff will try double slashes and some directory traversal tricks. It performs reverse DNS lookups of a whole IP range (with optional Whois lookup) and dictionary scans for hidden paths on one Web server or a range of IP addresses. Optionally you can encode a path with URL encoding use Google dict lookup mode to find the path on Google and only query the Webserver if there are no search results. It can also extract email addresses from domains using a Google search or perform a list of Google Hacking queries on your domain.
Nova is a software application for preventing and detecting hostile network reconnaissance (such as nmap scans). It does this by first creating the Haystack: a large collection of low interaction honeypots using an updated version of Honeyd. Finding real machines on the network becomes like finding a needle in a haystack of fake machines. Second, Nova uses machine learning algorithms to automatically detect and classify attempts at hostile reconnaissance, so there's no need to go searching manually through your honeypot's log files. It provides an easy to use Web-based interface powered by Node.js to configure itself and Honeyd instances.
