Aircrack-ng is a complete suite of tools to assess WiFi network security.

It focuses on different areas of WiFi security:

  • Monitoring: Packet capture and export of data to text files for further processing by third party tools

  • Attacking: Replay attacks, deauthentication, fake access points and others via packet injection

  • Testing: Checking WiFi cards and driver capabilities (capture and injection)

  • Cracking: WEP and WPA PSK (WPA 1 and 2)


All tools are command line which allows for heavy scripting. A lot of GUIs have taken advantage of this feature. It works primarily Linux but also Windows, OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, as well as Solaris and even eComStation 2.


iPerf3 is a tool for active measurements of the maximum achievable bandwidth on IP networks. It supports tuning of various parameters related to timing, buffers and protocols (TCP, UDP, SCTP with IPv4 and IPv6). For each test it reports the bandwidth, loss, and other parameters.

Maresware was originally designed to assist law enforcement personnel in the analysis and processing of computer related evidence, and for the raw processing of multi megabytes of data by both computer forensic examiners and auditors. Maresware was designed to handle extremely large amounts of data and to do so at maximum speed. Therefore, it was written in pure "C", which outperforms most other languages. Today, it can process those large amounts of giga and tera bytes of data fast and efficiently.

MaresWare is Free!


Monitorix is a free, open source, lightweight system monitoring tool designed to monitor as many services and system resources as possible. It has been created to be used under production Linux/UNIX servers, but due to its simplicity and small size can be used on embedded devices as well.


Network Monitoring

When it comes to open source network monitoring tools, the World’s largest organizations turn to Nagios. Nagios monitors the network for problems caused by overloaded data links or network connections, as well as monitoring routers, switches and more. Easily able to monitor availability, uptime and response time of every node on the network, Nagios can deliver the results in a variety of visual representations and reports.

Nmap – Plus  - sites Insecure.Org,Nmap.OrgSecLists.Org, SecTools.Org and the Nmap Security Scanner site.

Nmap is one of the most comprehensive sites that is run by Gordon Lyon, (Fyodor) that covers so many different tools and technologies it is best to just go to his site – download, play and learn. Fyodor is a well-known Technologist, writer and teacher. He is one of the GOOD hackers that uses his skills to teach and help network people learn about their world in so many ways. A MUST SEE site for all Bit, Nibble, Byte and Packet Nuts!

NetworkMiner is an open source Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows (but also works in Linux / Mac OS X / FreeBSD). NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network. NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files.

NetworkMiner makes it easy to perform advanced Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) by providing extracted artifacts in an intuitive user interface. The way data is presented not only makes the analysis simpler, it also saves valuable time for the analyst or forensic investigator.

A powerful command-line packet analyzer; and libpcap, a portable C/C++ library for network traffic capture.

Trace Wrangler.png

TraceWrangler is a network capture file toolkit running on Windows (or on Linux, using WINE) that supports PCAP as well as the new PCAPng file format, which is now the standard file format used by Wireshark. The most prominent use case for TraceWrangler is the easy sanitization and anonymization of PCAP and PCAPng files (sometimes called "trace files", "capture files" or "packet captures"), removing or replacing sensitive data while being easy to use.

Wireshark is the world’s foremost and widely-used network protocol analyzer. It lets you see what’s happening on your network at a microscopic level and is the de facto (and often de jure) standard across many commercial and non-profit enterprises, government agencies, and educational institutions. Wireshark development thrives thanks to the volunteer contributions of networking experts around the globe and is the continuation of a project started by Gerald Combs in 1998.
