Project 4 - Wired Sniffing

This lab provides students an introduction to a powerful network packet TCP/IP sniffer, tcpdump, and its basic usage within a virtualized environment. Students are assumed to be comfortable using a command line interface.
Students will work on four tasks:
  • Extract packet arrival time, source IP address, destination IP address and port.
  • Extract source MAC address and destination MAC address.
  • Get inter-arrival time while capturing packets.
  • Draw a chart with inter-arrival time versus the order of sequence number.
