Works on both 40 and 128 bit encryption. Many weaknesses in the WEP 802.11 protocol are discussed here. AirSnort is the first publicly available implementation of this attack. Once enough packets have been gathered, AirSnort can guess the encryption password in under a second.
amap – Amap is a scanning tool that allows you to identify the applications that are running on (a) specific port(s). It does this by connecting to the port(s) and sending trigger packets. These trigger packets will typically be an application protocol handshake (i.e. SSL). Amap then looks up the response in a list and prints out any match it finds. Adding new response identifications can be done just by adding them to an easy-to-read text file. With amap, you will be able to identify that SSL server running on port 3445 and some oracle listener on port 233!

dnswalk – dnswalk is a DNS database debugger. It works by initiating a zone transfer of a current zone, inspecting individual records for inconsistencies with other data, and generating warnings and errors. It is not a parser of DNS datafiles, it works strictly via existing DNS query methods on a “live” system (however dnswalk can be run on a separate nameserver which has data ready to move into production).
driftnet – Driftnet is a program which sniffs network traffic and picks out images from TCP streams it observes. It is interesting to run it on a host which sees a lot of web traffic. Changes: This release fixes problems with building in adjunct-only mode. There are performance enhancements.

fping – Fping is a ping(1) like program which uses the Internet Control Message Protocol (ICMP) echo request to determine if a host is up. fping is different from ping in that you can specify any number of hosts on the command line, or specify a file containing the lists of hosts to ping. Instead of trying one host until it timeouts or replies, fping will send out a ping packet and move on to the next host in a round-robin fashion. If a host replies, it is noted and removed from the list of hosts to check. If a host does not respond within a certain time limit and/or retry limit it will be considered unreachable. Unlike ping, fping is meant to be used in scripts and its output is easy to parse.
fragroute – Fragroute intercepts, modifies, and rewrites egress traffic destined for a specified host, implementing most of the attacks described in the Secure Networks “Insertion, Evasion, and Denial of Service: Eluding Network Intrusion Detection” paper of January 1998.

ssldump – SSLv3/TLS network protocol analyzer. It identifies TCP connections on the chosen network interface and attempts to interpret them as SSLv3/TLS traffic. When it identifies SSLv3/TLS traffic, it decodes the records and displays them in a textual form to stdout. If provided with the appropriate keying material, it will also decrypt the connections and display the application data traffic.
strace – a system call trace, a debugging tool which prints out a trace of all the system calls made by another process/program. The program to be traced need not be recompiled for this, so you can use it on binaries for which you don’t have source. System calls and signals are events that happen at the user/kernel interface. A close examination of this boundary is very useful for bug isolation, sanity checking and attempting to capture race and buffer overflow conditions.

tcprelay – aimed at testing the performance of a NIDS by replaying real background network traffic in which to hide attacks. Tcpreplay allows you to control the speed at which the traffic is replayed, and can replay arbitrary tcpdump traces. Unlike programmatically-generated artificial traffic which doesn’t exercise the application/protocol inspection that a NIDS performs, and doesn’t reproduce the real-world anomalies that appear on production networks (asymmetric routes, traffic bursts/lulls, fragmentation, retransmissions, etc.), tcpreplay allows for exact replication of real traffic seen on real networks.

transproxy – The program is used in conjunction with the Linux Transparent Proxy networking feature, and ipfwadm, to transparently proxy HTTP and other requests.
tsocks – tsocks provides transparent network access through a SOCKS version 4 or 5 proxy (usually on a firewall). tsocks intercepts the calls applications make to establish TCP connections and transparently proxies them as necessary. This allows existing applications to use SOCKS without recompilation or modification.
valgrind – A memory debugger for x86-linux
vmap – utility for fingerprinting services by checking features and replies of bogus commands being fed to the daemon. Currently supports FTP, SMTP, POP3, IMAP, and HTTP.
walker – Compuserve 3.0 Password Decrypter. It decrypts Compuserve 3.0 ini files (cis.ini) that stores account passwords
wipe – Recovery of supposedly erased data from magnetic media is easier than what many people would like to believe. A technique called Magnetic Force Microscopy (MFM) allows any moderately funded opponent recover the last two or three layers of data written to disk. Wipe repeadetly overwrites special patterns to the files to be destroyed, using the fsync() call and/or the O_SYNC bit to force disk access. Changes: Use of /dev/urandom to seed libc’s random() additive feedback pseudo-random generator; a new 32-bit seed is fetched for every 1024 bytes.
