n2disk is an application that many of the ntop community uses to dump traffic up to 100 Gbit. What few people know is that n2disk can index data not just using packet header information (i.e. IP, port. VLAN, MAC…) but … Continue reading →
Save the date! Two webinars have been planned for the cycle of this month. We start on Thursday, September 17th, 16:00 CEST / 10 AM EST, with “How to Write an ntopng Plugin“. In this workshop, we will see how … Continue reading →
Monitoring Industrial IoT and SCADA traffic can be challenging as most open source monitoring tools are designed for Internet protocols. As this is becoming a hot topic with companies automating production lines, we have decided to enhance ntop tools to … Continue reading →
One of the greatest strengths of ntopng is its ability to correlate data originating at different layers and at multiple sources together. For example, ntopng can look at IP packets, Ethernet frames and, at the same time, poll SNMP devices. … Continue reading →
Last year Intel announced a new family of 100 Gigabit network adapters, code-name Columbiaville. These new adapters, based on the new Intel Ethernet Controller E810, support 10/25/50/100 Gbps link speeds and provide programmable offload capabilities. Programmability 800 Series adapters implement … Continue reading →
Domain fronting is a technique that was used in 2010s by mobile apps to attempt to bypass censorship. The technique relies on a “front” legitimate domain that basically acts as a pivot for the forbidden domain. In essence an attacker … Continue reading →
This is to announce the release of n2n 2.8 stable. This release brings significant new features to n2n’s crypto world and offers some compression opportunities. Overall n2n performance has been greatly enhanced, reduced bandwidth usage thanks to data compression, and … Continue reading →
Most people are used to top X: top senders, top receivers, top protocols. So in essence they are looking for elephants. While this is a good practice, mice are also very interesting as they can often be hidden in the … Continue reading →
