a network protocol analyzer (or "packet sniffer") that can be used for
network analysis, troubleshooting, software development, education,
etc. This guide shows how to install and use it on an Ubuntu 9.10
desktop to analyze the traffic on the local network card.
I need to do the security protocol analysis/security of mobile application software (especially iOS and Android) for my MS project.
Need to know when they connect to the Internet. For example, if any personal information (including contacts and photos) is sent in cleartext. if I use wireshark would I be able to read the packet easily or would it be encrypted?
I'm currently working with Wireshark installed in CentOs and I want to use Lua to do some automated packet analysis.
As mentioned in this I tried to run tshark -X lua_script:hello.lua to see if I get Hello World!. But since I did not then I checked the tshark whether it does not have lua linked with it by using tshark -v command. I got the result and part of it said that 'without lua'.
Wireshark is the world’s foremost network protocol analyzer. It lets you capture and interactively browse the traffic running on a computer network. It is the de facto (and often de jure) standard across many industries and educational institutions.
