Raw socket programming in python (Linux)

Raw sockets allow a program or application to provide custom headers for the specific protocol(tcp ip) which are otherwise provided by the kernel/os network stack. In more simple terms its for adding custom headers instead of headers provided by the underlying operating system. Raw socket support is available natively in the socket api in linux. This is different from windows where ...

Syn flood program in python using raw sockets (Linux)

Syn flood and raw sockets A syn flood program sends out large number of tcp syn packets to a remote host on a particular port number. Syn packets are intended to initiate a tcp connection.

Code a packet sniffer in python with pcapy extension

Pcapy In the previous articles we coded packet sniffers in python using raw sockets. Now lets use the libpcap library for the same. Libpcap is the packet capture library for linux and has wrappers for most languages.
