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