|Project Description: ||Wireless access is considered as the preferred choice of connecting to the internet in the
modern networking era. Wireless digital security forensics is now regarded as a major challenge
to both technical and legal organizations. The rapid growth in wireless networks and access
points have created more security vulnerabilities and posed a major challenge to both
organizations and consumers. There are various freeware packet sniffing tools available which
are capable of listening and analyzing the network traffic. Wireshark is one of the most popularly
used packet sniffing tool capable of doing this work. Wireshark uses Winpcap library to analyze
and listen the traffic.
This project mainly discusses about the various wireless forensics tools available for both
Linux and Windows environments. The test cases for generation and forensic analysis of these
attacks is presented. Various test cases on packet sniffers capable of listening and analyzing the
traffic is presented. This project mainly focuses on implementing a packet sniffer that is similar
to Wireshark. It is similar in functionality to Wireshark, but it uses socket programming. The
main advantage of using this socket is that they have core network functionality and can run on
any hardware out of the box.
