High-level, multiplatform C++ network packet sniffing and crafting library.

libtins main purpose is to provide the C++ developer an easy, efficient, platform and endianness-independent way to create tools which need to send, receive and manipulate network packets.

libtins supports several protocols and features:

      Network packet crafting.
      Packet sniffing and automatic packet interpretation.
      Reading and writing PCAP files.
      Following and reassembling TCP streams on the fly.
      Decrypting WEP and WPA2(TKIP and CCMP) encrypted 802.11 data frames on the fly and interpreting the decrypted content.
      Works properly on at least the following architectures: x86, x64, ARM and MIPS (probably more).
      Supported protocols:
            IEEE 802.11
            IEEE 802.3
            IEEE 802.1q
            Linux Cooked Capture
