Komodia has a free sniffer open source code.Â Yes, I know.Â How can Komodia continue to give away resources that everyone else is only selling?Â The answer is that Komodia is striving to be the ANSWER to all of your questions.Â Komodia.com is already the recognized leader in all things LSP, but this is just the tip of the iceberg.Â
C++ library (free of charge, open source) which encapsulates winsock2 API capabilities, that enables the user to manage each and every aspect of sockets’ key operations. Functions: Simple to use andÂ understand and especially free of charge; Complete manageability over threading scenarios; Dependable and speedy.Â
Komodia has released a FREE SSL sniffer.Â This is an extremelyÂ straightforward HTTPÂ & HTTPS sniffer for Windows Internet Explorer and Firefox.Â Granted, this was done so that we can show off the incredible abilities of Komodia’sÂ SSL redirector SDK platform.Â Still, a free TCP stream sniffer?Â Are you kidding me?Â A free TCP stream sniffer Windows and Firefox!
SSL sniffing of XP, can be done in number of ways, it can be done with a SDK which is relevant for commercial applications or it can be done with a SSL Sniffer, you can even use Wireshark, but for that you must have the SSL key.
Download our free Internet Explorer snifferÂ which is a useful tool for various tasks ranging from debugging your application to debugging web sites. Other Internet explorer sniffers can come with or without SSL/HTTPS decryption support, it can be Open source, or propietary.
Which to use? this is not an easy question to answer because the sniffer choice is really a combination or needs, budget and deployment environment. For example: you can’t use a GPL sniffer like Wireshark for a commercial application, but buying a SDK just to sniff a normal website for a one time debug isn’t making sense as well.
Sniffer APIÂ is needed when a programmer wants to have a sniffing capability in his application. First thing to check is whether the programmer needs stream sniffing or packet sniffing. The difference is so great that choosing the wrong one can doom the project (I’ll not get into the differences in this post)
There are a few options:
Open source sniffers, the programmer must keep in mind that if he wants a closed commercial application, GPL sniffers such as Wireshark is not the best idea.
Propietary sniffers, can be used commercialy, sometimes may look costly in compare to “free” sniffers, but will be much better in terms of TCO.
