Net.Hunter can act as a tap and filter, data is passed through the unit unaltered and any data that matches the filters can be stored on the internal SDD, or sent to the mirroring output ports to be sent to another tool. In filter mode It is also possible to connect Net.Hunter to an external tap or mirror port, and any data that matches the filters can be stored or sent to the mirroring output ports. It is also possible to aggregate traffic from the input ports and send this data to another tool.
16 Hardware filters on each port can be applied to all incoming traffic, only data that matches the filters is captured or passed to the output ports. Filters include Ethernet MAC addresses, Ethertype, VLAN, IP addresses, Protocol type, DCSP, TCP/UDP port, and customer defined masks and pattern match.
Net.Hunter is undetectable on the circuit under test with no MAC or IP address making it ideal for security applications. Operating at line speed with no delay or loss of traffic Net.Hunter is the ideal tool for network troubleshooting, forensics and security where capturing off network data is paramount.
Using a standard Web Browser users can access captured data stored on the internal SSD and download the file to a PC or MAC for analysis in Wireshark or another protocol analysis tool. Captured data is stored in PCAPNG format providing the widest capability with analysis tools. Disk capture options allow for capture to be stopped when the internal disk is full or to wrap the capture. A wrap around capture never deletes any existing data stored on the disk but older frames within the current capture may be overwritten.
Albedo Net.Hunter is an FPGA based hand held capture appliance capable of capturing ALL packets on a full duplex GbE line. Packets that match any of the 16 + 16 user defined hardware filters can be saved to the internal SSD (Solid State Drive) or sent to another tool via the mirroring (output) ports. All operations are executed at FULL line rate in both directions (Tx & Rx) with zero delay (nS) and zero loss to the live traffic.
Yes Net.Hunter is a hand-held battery powered unit that can operate for up to about 5 hours on it's built in batteries, or on A.C power when available
With the VNC remote control option Net.Hunter can be controlled through the dedicated Ethernet Management port, and then using a Web Browser it is possible to connect to Net.Hunter and download captured files for analysis
Yes Net.Hunter is equipped with both Electrial Ethenet ports as well as SGP slots meaning that it is possible to connect to Optical Gigabit Ethenet links
