Scapext: Scapy Extended

Scapy is a great tool for network packets manipulation (sniff, dissect, create, send,…).

When I use this tool, I feel some features miss. So I have written an extension (called Scapext) that, for now, includes:

  • GeoIP support (through Maxmind GeoIP Python API). This is faster than the method used in Scapy for now, and easier.
  • PFLog pcap type (used by the OpenBSD Packet Filter to log packets; this allows PF to store valuable information on what happened to the packets logged).
  • Early SunRPC support with state handling.

Interested? See my posts about Scapy.
