In this course you will learn how to code in C using libpcap, libdnet, libnids, and drive it all with libevent. The main language will be C, but we will also cover python bindings to these techniques.

Day 1

a) TCP/IP and ethernet networking overview
b) Packet capture with libpcap
c) Packet construction with libdnet
d) Libnids and stream reconstruction techniques

Day 2

a) Recap and questions from day 1
b) Event driven programming (signals, read, write, timers), libevent
c) Common tool classes: scanners, snifers, and tracers
d) Bringing it all together:
e) A simple stream sniffer (illustrating the use of libnids and libevent)
f) A simple port scanner (illustrating libpcap, libevent, libdnet)
g) Questions and other things you can do.
