The Design and Implementation of a Packet Sniffer (PSniffer) Model for Network Security

This paper presents another type of packet sniffer software that captures network data as well as provides sufficient means for the decision making process of an administrator. This paper designed a new model and defined its benefits over existing packet sniffers; the model was developed in Java totally. The aim of this model is to rewrite C language sniffer models into Java, and also develop a model that consumes little memory on the hard disk. This model comprises of five independent modules that handles different tasks efficiently using Winpcap and JPCAP for sniffing. ARP cache poisoning method is used for sniffing in this model.
