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?
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.
