Wireshark is the world's foremost network protocol analyzer, and is the de facto (and often de jure) standard across many industries and educational institutions. (Wireshark was known as Ethereal until June 09, 2006)
This is a piece of software that lets you tunnel IPv4 data through a DNS server. This can be usable in different situations where internet access is firewalled, but DNS queries are allowed. It runs on Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, NetBSD and OpenBSD and needs a TUN/TAP device. The bandwidth is ... [More]
Some vendors refuses to release specs or even a binary Linux driver for their WLAN cards. ndiswrapper tries to solve this by making a kernel module that can load Ndis (Windows network driver API) drivers. The goal is not to implement all of the Ndis API, but to implement the functions needed to get cards without Linux drivers to work.
Ettercap is a network sniffer/interceptor/logger for ethernet LANs. It supports active and passive dissection of many protocols (even ciphered ones, like SSH and HTTPS). Data injection in an established connection and filtering on the fly is also possible, keeping the connection synchronized. Many ... [More]
Aircrack-ng is an 802.11 WEP and WPA-PSK keys cracking program that can recover keys once enough data packets have been captured. It implements the standard FMS attack along with some optimizations like KoreK attacks, thus making the attack much faster compared to other WEP cracking tools. In fact ... [More]
Wellenreiter is a GTK/Perl wireless network discovery and auditing tool. Prism2, Lucent, and Cisco based cards are supported. It is the easiest to use Linux scanning tool. No card configuration has to be done anymore. The whole look and feel is pretty self-explaining. It can discover networks ... [More]
netsniff-ng is is a free, performant Linux network analyzer and networking toolkit. The gain of performance is reached by zero-copy mechanisms, so that the kernel does not need to copy packets from kernelspace to userspace and vice versa. netsniff-ng consists of much more than only a network ...

This is PEWIT, Polling Enlightens WIreless neTworks. It serves a so-called "Polling Method" to solve the hidden station problem in wireless networks. Thanks to this scheduling algorithm, no packet collision will occur in theory. So, PEWIT makes outdoor wireless networks more efficient.
