PcapXray – GUI Network Forensics Tool To Analysis a Packet Capture Offline

Network Forensics Tool is often used by security professionals to test the vulnerabilities in the network. With this kali Linux tutorial, we introduce a Comprehensive tool PcapXray to analyze the pcap file.

The tool plots hosts in the network, network traffic, highlight important traffic and Tor traffic as well as potentially malicious traffic.

The tool contains the following components

  • Network Diagram.
  • Device/Traffic Details and Analysis.
  • Malicious Traffic Identification.
  • Tor Traffic
  • GUI – a GUI with options to upload pcap file

Tutorial – Network Forensics Tool 

The packet capture tool can be called from GitHub. The tool gives security officials an initial glitch for investigation.

git clone https://github.com/Srinivas11789/PcapXray.git

cd PcapXray

To install the requirements: pip install -r requirements.txt

To Run : python Source/main.py

It will launch a graphical user interface and ask to locate the pcap file.

For demonstration, we have used the Netflix phishing campaign’s pcap file, with this tool we can extract the web traffic, Tor traffic, Malicious traffic, and other traffic details.

The analysis takes some time, and after that, we get a detailed report on communication, Device, and Packet details.

And the Destination IP 98[.]209[.]70[.]101 is not resolvable at the time of our analysis, looks like the campaign already ended.

The tool includes the following Python libraries

Scapy – rdpcap to read the packets from the pcap file
Ipwhois – to obtain whois information from ip
Netaddr – to check ip information type
Pillow – image processing library
Stem – tor consensus data fetch library
pyGraphviz – plot graph
Networkx – plot graph
Matplotlib – plot graph

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
