Passive network mapping using Packet capture


Recommended Posts

Is there a tool to passively map a network from a packet capture and produce documentation e.g. network map, ports open on devices etc...?

  • nmap
  • hoover.pl
  • wireshark
  • kismet
  • aircrack-ng

When you say you need to 'map' the network and produce documents, do you mean like a nice 'flowchart' type view?

More along the line of identifying hosts, DNS servers, printers etc.. in a graphical form. List of protocols used on the network. websites browsed too.

Packets to be captured on the Packet Squirrel on my test environment.

Are we talking about a Nmap scan? Was hoping to be totally passive in collecting packets.

I’ve used zenmap to produce nice graphical topology graphics before and it’s a nice little tool.Obviously I wouldn’t be able to produce a topology(L2) from a single pcap, but should be able to build a picture for L3.
