Linux Forensics Tools Repository: Package Summary for Packages on June 8, 2011:

  • libfixbuf{,-devel}-1.0.1-1.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - Libfixbuf is a compliant implementation of the IPFIX Protocol, as defined in the "Specification of the IPFIX Protocol for the Export of IP Flow Information" (RFC 5101).
  • 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 only change was to recompile all of the tools to use libfixbuf{,-devel}-1.0.1 packages. The packages added to the repository are:

    • silk-analysis-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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-2.4.5-3.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{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}-2.0.1-1.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - Yaf is Yet Another Flowmeter and yaf is a suite of tools to do flow metering. yaf is used as a sensor to capture flow information on a network and export that information in IPFIX format. It reads packet data from pcap(3) dumpfiles as generated by tcpdump(1), from live capture from an interface using pcap(3), an Endace DAG capture device, or a Napatech adapter, aggregates these packets into flows, and exports flow records via IPFIX over SCTP, TCP or UDP, Spread, or into serialized IPFIX message streams (IPFIX files) on the local file system. Here are the changes:
    • This version requires libfixbuf 1.0.0 or greater.
    • Bug Fix for compile error with --enable-daginterface
    • Enhancement for SNMPv3 application labeler

  • md5deep-3.9.1-1.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{i386,x86_64}.rpm - This package was updated to reflect the new version of md5deep.
  • etherape-0.9.12-1.{fc11,fc12,fc13,fc14,fc15,el5}.{i386,x86_64} - etherape is a graphical network monitor for Unix modeled after etherman. Featuring link layer, ip and TCP modes, it displays network activity graphically. Hosts and links change in size with traffic. Color coded protocols display. It supports Ethernet, FDDI, Token Ring, ISDN, PPP and SLIP devices. It can filter traffic to be shown, and can read traffic from a file as well as live from the network. Note: this version is the latest available from the Sourceforge website which is newer than the version available from the standard Fedora repositories.
