Development of a network packet sniffing tool for internet protocol generations

International Journal of Cloud Computing (IJCC), Vol. 9, No. 2/3, 2020

Abstract: Packet sniffing is a way to take advantage of each packet as it flows across the network. One of the most complex problems that face the network administrators is the network analysing. The information provided by existing tools for network traffic analysis is very small and considered enormous data if they were all stored for later analysis which make it difficult to be analysed. This paper aims to propose a sniffing tool to capture the packets of both IPv4 and IPv6. The proposed tool works to access the captured packets by using socket class in visual studio. The first scenario is to analyse IPV4 by capturing the packets and identifying the used ports, protocols, and the packets. However, the second scenario is to analyse IPV6 in the same way. The results are varied from IPv4 to IPv6 by the number of captured protocols and the used ports for both source and destination.
