Chaosreader traces TCP/UDP/others sessions and fetches application data from
snoop or tcpdump logs. This is a type of "any-snarf" program, as it will
fetch telnet sessions, FTP files, HTTP transfers (HTML, GIF, JPEG etc) and
SMTP emails from the captured data inside network traffic logs. A html index
file is created to that links to all the session details, including realtime
replay programs for telnet, rlogin, IRC, X11 and VNC sessions. Chaosreader
reports such as image reports and HTTP GET/POST content reports.
Chaosreader can also run in standalone mode, where it invokes tcpdump to
create the log files and then processes them.
