Open Source Project Ports: tcpdump


wolfSSL is always adding new ports to our highly portable wolfCrypt library! We’re continuing our series on the latest open source project portsthis week, we’re featuring tcpdump.

We have integrated wolfSSL with tcpdump, a powerful command-line packet analyzer. This update allows for the use of tcpdump with our FIPS-validated crypto library, wolfCrypt. Tcpdump is a versatile tool with many options and filters, and is commonly used to capture or filter TCP/IP packets that are received or transferred over a network on a specific interface. Its long-running history ensures that there are many resources available for learning how to use this tool (See the tcpdump Wikipedia page for more info). 

Through the OpenSSL compatibility layer, tcpdump is able to call into wolfSSL. Visit the GitHub page here:
