Linux Forensics Tools Repository: Package Summary for Packages on March 22, 2011:

  • SiLK - SiLK is the System for Internet-Level Knowledge, a collection of traffic analysis tools developed by the CERT Network Situational Awareness Team (CERT NetSA) to facilitate security analysis of large networks. The packages added to the repository are:

    • silk-analysis-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-common package contains the libraries and configuration files required by the other parts of SiLK Toolset, as well as generally useful utilities.
    • silk-common-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-common package contains the libraries and configuration files required by the other parts of SiLK Toolset, as well as generally useful utilities.
    • silk-devel-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm- The silk-devel package contains the development libraries and headers for SiLK. This package is required to build additional applications or to build shared libraries for use as plug-ins to The silk analysis tools.
    • silk-flowcap-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-flowcap package contains flowcap, a daemon to capture NetFlow v5 or IPFIX flows (Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport), to store the data temporarily in files on its local disk, and to forward these files over the network to a machine where rwflowpack processes the data. flowcap is typically used with an rwsender-rwreceiver pair to move the files across the network.
    • silk-rwflowappend-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-rwflowappend package is used when the final storage location of SiLK data files is on a different machine than that where the files are created by the rwflowpack daemon (see The silk-rwflowpack package). rwflowappend watches a directory for SiLK data files and appends those files to the final storage location where The silk analysis tools (from The silk-analysis package) can process them. To move the files from rwflowpack to rwflowappend, an rwsender-rwreceiver pair is typically used.
    • silk-rwflowpack-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-rwflowpack package converts NetFlow v5 or IPFIX (Internet Protocol Flow Information eXport) data to The silk Flow record format, categorizes each flow (e.g., as incoming or outgoing), and stores the data in binary flat files within a directory tree, with one file per hour-category-sensor tuple.
    • silk-rwpollexec-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-rwpollexec package contains a program (rwpollexec) which monitors a directory for incoming files. For each file, rwpollexec executes a user-specified command. If the command completes successfully, the file is either moved to an archive directory or deleted.
    • silk-rwreceiver-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-rwreceiver package contains a program (rwreceiver) which receives files over the network from one or more rwsender programs. rwsender-rwreceiver pairs are used to move files from a machine running flowcap and one running rwflowpack, or from the rwflowpack machine to machine(s) running rwflowappend.
    • silk-rwsender-2.4.5-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - The silk-rwsender package contains a program (rwsender) which transmits files over the network to one or more rwreceiver programs. rwsender-rwreceiver pairs are used to move files from a machine running flowcap and one running rwflowpack, or from the rwflowpack machine to machine(s) running rwflowappend.

  • yaf{,-devel}-1.3.2-1.fc1{1,2,3,4}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - YAF is Yet Another Flow sensor. It processes packet data from pcap(3) dumpfiles as generated by tcpdump(1) or via live capture from an interface using pcap(3) or an Endace DAG card into bidirectional flows, then exports those flows to IPFIX Collecting Processes or in an IPFIX-based file format. YAF's output can be used with the NetSA Aggregated Flow (NAF) toolchain. The yaf-devel package contains static libraries and C header files for yaf.
  • aff{tools,lib,lib-devel}-3.6.8-1.fc{11,12,13,14}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - Afflib is the library and tools to manipulate files using the Advanced Forensic Format. Please note: as of AFFLIB 3.6, all tool names start with the string aff which marks a change from AFFLIB version 3.5.
  • CERT-Forensics-Tools-1.0-28.fc{11,12,13,14}.noarch.rpm - This package was updated to add the SiLK and YAF tools.
