This paper "Automation of Network Protocol Analysis" is mainly aimed to automate the entire process. Starting from sniffing the network packets till the validation of it has been taken care. Here, the authors have automated the logging part through a C program. Whenever packets will be transmitted from a system, Ethereal/Wireshark will be automatically invoked and start capturing the network packets. That will be stored in .pcap format automatically. To validate the contents the logic has been implemented to check particular pattern of packets or any specific string.
