10 Gbit and above lossless network traffic recording with n2disk. Industry standard PCAP file format. On-the-fly indexing to quickly retrieve interesting packets using fast-BPF and time interval. Precise traffic replay with disk2n.
nProbe: extensible NetFlow v5/v9/IPFIX probe with plugins support for L7 content inspection. nProbe Cento: up to 100 Gbit NetFlow, traffic classification, and packet shunting for IDS/packet-to-disk acceleration.
High-speed web-based traffic analysis and flow collection using ntopng. Persistent traffic statistics in RRD format. Layer 7 analysis by leveraging on nDPI, an Open Source DPI framework.
This month it’s 20 years that I have started the ntop project. Initially it was a hobby project, willing to understand what was really flowing on a network after having spent 5 years playing with OSI that was clearly a … Continue reading →
Using nProbe in combination with ntopng is a common practice. The benefits of this combination are manyfold and include: A complete decoupling of monitoring activities (taking place on the nProbe) from visualization tasks (taking place on ntopng); The capability of … Continue reading →
In early August, Scott Schweitzer interviewed me about network monitoring and packet capture. The conversation has been very broad, and I have covered various topics ranging from packet capture, network traffic analysis, deep packet inspection, IoT (Internet of Things) and … Continue reading →
Fritz!Box routers are popular devices that many people use to connect to the Internet. Inside these routers there is a hidden (i.e. not accessible from the router web admin page, but that you access directly with a web browser by … Continue reading →
At ntop we use wireshark to dissect traffic and to learn how to make our tools better. We’re not typical packet-oriented users however, as we want to see traffic as a whole and not packet-by-packet. This has been the motivation … Continue reading →
This week at Sharkfest US 17, we have presented the ntop contributions to wireshark. In particular: How to use nDPI to complement Wireshark traffic classification How to remote capture on a remote box at 10/401/100 Gbit and stream traffic securely … Continue reading →
Last week the NYC Metrics and Monitoring meetup invited ntop to give a talk. The topic was how to open ntopng so that it can become a gateway for producing network metrics that could be used by popular applications and … Continue reading →
The current nProbe 8.0 release contains many changes with respect to the 7.x series. We have optimised the code, added the ability to collect non standard fields (e.g. Cisco AVC), improved Kafka export, and reworked many tiny details to make … Continue reading →
If you have enjoyed ntopng 2.x, we believe you will like 3.0 even more as we have worked for almost one year to this release. We have modified many things, improved security in ntopng (in the cybersecurity days this is … Continue reading →
nDPI 2.0 is a major release that: Consolidates the API, in particular for guessing new protocols or notifying nDPI that for a given flow there are no more packets to dissect. Introduces nDPI support into Wireshark by means of a … Continue reading →
