sniffdet - Remote Sniffer Detection Tool/Library
Sniffdet is an Open Source implementation of a set of tests for remote sniffers detection in TCP/IP network environments. It's composed of a flexible and easy to use library and an application to run the tests. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
Sniffdet implements various tests for the detection of machines running in promiscuous mode or with a sniffer. Besides other general use functions, libsniffdet provides the following tests:
The application has a flexible interface which allows the customization of every test by using a config file, can test multiple machines at the same execution, has a plugin interface for the reports and runs as an unprivileged user.
2009-12-04: sniffdet moved to git
Sniffdet is not under active development anymore, but the latest development version (strongly recommended for anyone interested) has been moved from SVN to a git repository. Anyway, contributions are still very welcome. Check it out at the sniffdet gitweb interface
2006-10-10: repository is back
Actually, you'll need the latest development version if you intend to compile sniffdet on a modern Linux distribution, since 0.9 uses some deprecated tools.
2003-07-04: sniffdet 0.9 released
This is our latest stable release of sniffdet: sniffdet-0.9. It includes many usability improvements, better documentation (including a libsniffdet-usage-example.c file), and several bugfixes.
