Wireshark Purposes

►Wireshark -has been around for ages and is extremely popular. Wireshark allows the pentester to put a network interface into a promiscuous mode and therefore see all traffic. This tool has many features such as being able to capture data from live network connection or read from a file that saved already-captured packets. Wireshark is able to read data from a wide variety of networks, from Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, PPP, and even loopback. Like most tools in our 2013 Concise Courses Security List the captured network data can be monitored and managed via a GUI – which also allows for plug-ins to be inserted and used. Wireshark can also capture VoIP packets (like Cain & Able ) and raw USB traffic can also be captured.:
