example for netwrok packet code for creating a module and access the packet data
 
i'm doing my main project and have to write a network module that could access the TCP/IP packets recieved and show the data on the user space... i have read through few books but couldnt manage to get a fullfledge example to start with... can some one help.. i need an example that could access the network packet and its data...
some data that could help me to work with... something related to netlink

In userspace, one uses socket()s to send and receive TCP/IP data. You can also send & receive raw ethernet datagrams using sockets and the Raw Sockets protocol. For a good primer on network programming in Linux, with working example C source, see Beej's Guide.

See also the src code for the tcpdump cmd.

i've tried writing with raw socket and could collect the packet but i'm not sure if its accessing all packets.... my teachers said through that i'm only getting the packets that are broadcasted...

i coulndt understand much what he meant.he asked me to search more and check if i can use netlink

to execute

step 1
gcc sniffer.c -o sniffer

step 2
sudo ./sniffer


this will generate a log file


thanks for the help

theNbomr 01-06-2012 10:10 AM

Yes, using raw sockets will only receive broadcast and unicast packets. Are you trying to create a sniffer? For that you should probably use libpcap. A sniffer needs to operate the ethernet interface in promiscuous mode, meaning that it will capture all packets, irrespective of the destination MAC in the ethernet header.

can someone help me resolve these

You haven't #include'd the .h files that define those fns :)

oracle89divi22 01-10-2012 02:45 AM

thanks chrism01 i did that and it has resolved most of the errors i had.... i executed it successfully along with a warning but now the state is that the socket is not being created am i doing anything wrong please check

sock_fd=socket(PF_NETLINK, SOCK_RAW, NETLINK_USER);

if(sock_fd<0)
return -1;

the control goes into the if loop immediately after executing the socket statement...plz help urget..

the error i found is some casting problem in

printf("Received message payload: %s\n", NLMSG_DATA(nlh));


error is
socket invaliddivya@divya:~$ gcc user.c -o user
user.c: In function ‘main’:
user.c:56: warning: format ‘%s’ expects type ‘char *’, but argument 2 has type ‘void *’

theNbomr 01-10-2012 10:33 AM

Since you are using raw socket protocol, you must have root privileges. Not having that would explain the failure to create a socket. You should be able to get rid of the compiler warning by casting the void pointer argument to a char *.

oracle89divi22 01-10-2012 01:11 PM

nombr i've corrected the code and made it execute fine... this now sends data from kernel to the userspace...:-) nw all i need to do is catch hold of packets from the TCP/ip stack and send those from kernel to userspace can you explain what can i do for that to happen..

thanks in advance..

i got this output in the var/log/messages file

Entering: hello_init
Entering: hello_nl_recv_msg
Netlink received msg payload: Hello

theNbomr 01-10-2012 02:32 PM

Sorry, I didn't notice you were working in kernel space. I think you have to short-circuit the TCP/IP stack, since that layer will only capture IP packets. I have no idea ho to accomplish any of what you're doing, but I do question why you need/want to do any of it in kernel space. Sniffers work just fine in userspace, as long as they get sufficient privileges.

oracle89divi22 01-10-2012 09:57 PM

basically my main project is to develop a kernel rootkit and hence capture packets from kernel as i've to capture all packets passing through and send these to user space

i met sir today he asked me to use netfilter hooks can someone help me where i can find a fast learning tutorial or a code as i've to complete this part of my project by tomorrow morning 9am....

really urgent....:-(

You want to develop a rootkit, and are asking for HELP? And, you've posted the same question in about five different threads, some of which are 9 years old.

Tinkster 01-13-2012 05:27 PM

Thread re-opened as it was clarified that this is in fact
not about a root-kit.
