Netcat netcat is a network utility for reading from and writing to network connections on either TCP or UDP. Hobbit (hobbit@avian.org) created netcat in 1995 as a network analog of Unix cat command. The flexibility and usefulness of this tool have prompted people to write numerous other Netcat implementations -- often with modern features not found in the original. Netcat is designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities. Most common version is 1.1: Among the most interesting clones under active development is socat, which extends Netcat to support many other socket types, SSL encryption, SOCKS proxies, and more. Another interesting implementation is Chris Gibson's Ncat which is available from

Nmap - Free Security Scanner For Network Exploration & Security Audits. Hash Suite - a Windows program to audit security of password hashes The GNU Netcat -- Official homepage TC: NetSec lab The NetSec lab consists of a set of exercises for teaching network traffic anomaly detection to electrical engineering students. The lab explores basic methods for analyzing Internet Protocol (IP) traffic data destined to unassigned address space darkspace. The introduced dataset has been curated from data collected by the UCSD Network Telescope, which monitors traffic to a large (/8) dark address segment. An IP darkspace is a globally routable IP address segment with no active hosts. All traffic to an IP darkspace is unsolicited and unidirectional. Observing and analyzing darkspace traffic can facilitate study, analysis, and even detection of network attacks and global incidents such as scanning, DDoS attacks, network outages, and misconfigurations. For the NetSec lab v2, the exercise about the TCP 3-Way Handshake has been taken from C. Objectives: Students learn how to analyze and understand network traffic flows. Required software/tools: Corsaro, MATLAB/Octave, Rapidminer, Whireshark.

Useful Uses Of netcat Version 1.0 Author: Falko Timme Last edited 11/28/2008 This short article shows some useful netcat commands. netcat is known as the TCP/IP swiss army knife. From the netcat man page: netcat is a simple unix utility which reads and writes data across network connections, using TCP or UDP protocol. It is designed to be a reliable "back-end" tool that can be used directly or easily driven by other programs and scripts. At the same time, it is a feature-rich network debugging and exploration tool, since it can create almost any kind of connection you would need and has several interesting built-in capabilities. I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you! 1 Preliminary Note I'm using two systems in this article: server1.example.com: IP address 192.168.0.100 server2.example.com: IP address 192.168.0.101 netcat should already be installed on your system - you can check with which nc To learn more about netcat, take a look at its man page: man nc server2: On server1, run server1: ifconfig

How To Use Netcat to Establish and Test TCP and UDP Connections on a VPS Introduction Linux is known for having a great number of mature, useful command line utilities available out of the box in most distributions. Skilled system administrators can do much of their work using the built-in tools without having to install additional software. In this guide, we will discuss how to use the netcat utility. Often referred to as a Swiss army knife of networking tools, this versatile command can assist you in monitoring, testing, and sending data across network connections. We will be exploring this on an Ubuntu 12.04 VPS, but netcat should be available on almost any modern Linux distribution. General Syntax By default, netcat operates by initiating a TCP connection to a remote host. The most basic syntax is: netcat [options] host port This will attempt to initiate a TCP to the defined host on the port number specified. If you would like to send a UDP packet instead of initiating a TCP connection, you can use the -u option: netcat -u host port netcat host startport-endport
