network packet generator and capture tool
Packit (PACket toolKIT) is a network auditing tool. It uses libpcap and can make real packages (frames) that are able to travel in a network. Packit also allows one to add personalized payloads. Other good feature is the possibility to read dump files created by tcpdump.
Packit has an ability to customize, inject, monitor and manipulate IP traffic. By allowing you to define (spoof) nearly all TCP, UDP, ICMP, IP, ARP, RARP, and Ethernet header options, Packit can be useful for the following scenarios:
- tests in firewalls; - tests in Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS); - tests in Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS); - tests in proxies; - tests in port scanning detectors; - network traffic simulations; - security tests; and - general TCP/IP auditing and pentests.
Packit is also an excellent tool for learning TCP/IP. However, this program does not support IPv6.
