Packet Crafting for Firewall & IDS Audits (Part 2 of 2) Introduction This is the second of a two-part article series that discusses various methods of testing the integrity of your firewall and IDS, using low-level TCP/IP packet crafting tools and techniques. Part one showed several examples that tested a firewall (port 80 TCP, and port 53, UDP) using tools like hping and tcpdump. We will now continue the discussion with a third test of the firewall, using the same tools as noted above, and then move on to test your IDS signatures and detection ability.
