Description Ilian Zarov 2002-02-14 15:39:10 UTC
p0f performs passive OS detection based on SYN packets.
p0f-1.8.2.tar.gz contains p0f-1.8.2.ebuild, p0f-1.8.2-makefile.patch to patch
Makefile not to use programs outside sandbox (uname to check for sun os, which
is not needed on a linux system) and p0f-1.8.2.init - I modified the original rc
script to work with the gentoo rc scripting stuff.
 The passive OS fingerprinting technique is based on information coming
from a remote host when it tries to establish a connection to your
system. Captured packet parameters contain enough information to
identify the remote OS. In contrast to active scanners such as nmap
and queSO, p0f does this without sending anything to the remote host.
 I suggest net-analyzer/p0f for this ebuild.
