Netifera 1.0 released!

After a long wait, Netifera version 1.0 was released. I talked about this tool in a previous post. The feature list seems to have remained pretty much the same, with some new bruteforcing modules – most notably the remote OS and architecture detection was drastically improved, and as expected contains many bugfixes compared to the previous betas.

Here’s the full feature list:

Tools

  • Full IPv6 support
  • TCP and UDP network scanning
  • Service detection
  • Operating system identification
  • Reverse DNS scanning
  • DNS name brute forcing
  • DNS zone transfer information gathering
  • Geographical information about network addresses
  • Authentication brute force attack (against HTTP, FTP,IMAP and POP3)
  • Web crawler discovers applications, collects email addresses and adds the site structure to the model
  • Integrated terminal for connecting to and interacting with network services

Passive Tools

  • Modular packet capture service
  • Capture packets on multiple interfaces simultaneously
  • Parse ’pcap’ format capture files as input to sniffing modules
  • HTTP traffic analysis
  • DNS information gathering from captured responses
  • Network stack fingerprinting
  • Service detection from captured banners and protocol packets
  • Client application detection
  • Credential sniffing for many protocols

Data Model

All information discovered by the netifera platform is persistently
stored in a workspace database. Our extension design allows for
developers to easily create their own data types and integrate them
into the platform.

User Interface

The platform provides an intuitive and professional quality graphical
user interface for using the tools written for our platform and
navigating the information they produce. Different tasks in our
application such as sniffing information from the network, or actively
collecting information by scanning networks, or exploring the local
environment of a remotely deployed probe (coming soon! ) each have a
specialized configuration of the user interface called a ’perspective’

Programming API

The netifera platform brings together high quality programming APIs
for tasks such as:

  • High performance asynchronous socket connection and communication
  • Link level packet capture and raw socket injection
  • 802.11 monitor mode packet capture and injection (coming soon! )
  • Network protocol header construction and analysis (ethernet, ip, tcp, etc…)
  • Application layer protocol libraries (http, dns, ftp, etc…)
