New add-on as of Core Update 132.

  • Deep inspection of hundreds of protocols
  • Live capture and offline analysis
  • VoIP analysis
  • Read/write different capture file formats
  • Collection of various types of statistics
  • Capture files compressed with gzip can be decompressed on the fly
  • Live data can be read from Ethernet, IEEE 802.11, PPP/HDLC, ATM, Bluetooth, USB, Token Ring, Frame Relay, FDDI, and others
  • Decryption support for many protocols, including IPsec, ISAKMP, Kerberos, SNMPv3, SSL/TLS, WEP, and WPA/WPA2
  • Coloring can be applied for quick intuitive analysis
  • Output can be exported to XML, PostScript®, CSV, or plain text
