Wireshark is the world's foremost network protocol analyzer, and is the de
facto (and often de jure) standard across many industries and educational
institutions. Wireshark has a rich feature set which includes 1) deep
inspection of hundreds of protocols, with more being added all the time, 2)
live capture and offline analysis, 3) standard three-pane packet browser, 4)
captured network data can be browsed via a GUI, or via the TTY-mode TShark
utility, 5) the most powerful display filters in the industry, 6) rich VoIP
analysis, 7) read/write many different capture file formats: tcpdump (libpcap),
Catapult DCT2000, Cisco Secure IDS iplog, Microsoft Network Monitor, Network
General Sniffer® (compressed and uncompressed), Sniffer® Pro, and NetXray®,
Network Instruments Observer, Novell LANalyzer, RADCOM WAN/LAN Analyzer,
Shomiti/Finisar Surveyor, Tektronix K12xx, Visual Networks Visual UpTime,
WildPackets EtherPeek/TokenPeek/AiroPeek, and many others, 8) capture files
compressed with gzip can be decompressed on the fly, 9) live data can be read
from Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, PPP/HDLC, ATM, Bluetooth, USB, Token Ring, Frame
Relay, FDDI, and others, 10) decryption support for many protocols, including
IPsec, ISAKMP, Kerberos, SNMPv3, SSL/TLS, WEP, and WPA/WPA2, 11) coloring rules
can be applied to the packet list for quick, intuitive analysis, 12) output can
be exported to XML, PostScript®, CSV, or plain text.
