  17. Description: Tool to replay saved tcpdump files at arbitrary speeds
  18. Tcpreplay is aimed at testing the performance of a NIDS by
  19. replaying real background network traffic in which to hide
  20. attacks. Tcpreplay allows you to control the speed at which the
  21. traffic is replayed, and can replay arbitrary tcpdump traces. Unlike
  22. programmatically-generated artificial traffic which doesn't
  23. exercise the application/protocol inspection that a NIDS performs,
  24. and doesn't reproduce the real-world anomalies that appear on
  25. production networks (asymmetric routes, traffic bursts/lulls,
  26. fragmentation, retransmissions, etc.), tcpreplay allows for exact
  27. replication of real traffic seen on real networks. It included the following
  28. executables tcpprep, tcprewrite, tcpreplay-edit, tcpbridge and pcap
  29. based captures are possible.
