Name        : netsniff-ng
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 0.5.7
Release     : 7.fc17
URL         : http://netsniff-ng.org/
Summary     : Packet sniffing beast
Description :
netsniff-ng is a high performance Linux network sniffer for packet inspection.
It can be used for protocol analysis, reverse engineering or network
debugging. The gain of performance is reached by 'zero-copy' mechanisms, so
that the kernel does not need to copy packets from kernelspace to userspace.

netsniff-ng toolkit currently consists of the following utilities:

* netsniff-ng: the zero-copy sniffer, pcap capturer and replayer itself.
* trafgen: a high performance zero-copy network packet generator.
* ifpps: a top-like kernel networking and system statistics tool.
* curvetun: a lightweight curve25519-based multiuser IP tunnel.
* ashunt: an autonomous system trace route and ISP testing utility.
* flowtop: a top-like netfilter connection tracking tool.
* bpfc: a tiny Berkeley Packet Filter compiler supporting Linux extensions.

Update Information:

This is new version of package that adds curvetun and changes package description to be in sync with upstream.
Fixed license field, the license of the package is GPLv2, not GPLv2+. Updated summary & description to be in sync with upstream.
