Design of a Embedded Ethernet Packet Sniffer
In this paper the authors are proposing a brief description about embedded Ethernet based event controller Packet sniffers. These are devices or programs capable of intercepting and logging network traffic for which they were not the intended recipient. Their ability to eavesdrop on network traffic has made them indispensable tools for IT administrators. In modern IP networks, packet sniffers are often used to determine the source of network problems, detect intrusions and locate vulnerabilities. Sniffers can also be used for covert surveillance of users internet activities. Ethernet operates at higher bit rate than slow-speed embedded protocols.
