NAME ^

Net::Protocol::Simple - Perl extension for handling simple generic protocol layers within applications

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Net::Protocol::Simple;
  my $p = Net::Protocol::Simple->new(protocol => 6, layer => 4);

  $p->protocol(); Gives us 'TCP'
  $p->int(); Gives us 6;

  my $p = Net::Protocol::Simple->new(protocol = 'udp', layer => 4);
  $p->protocol(); Gives us 'UDP';
  $p->int(); Gives us 17;

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is intended to be used in conjunction with Net::Connection::Simple. Some applications such as snort and other IDS's log their alert data as simple connections. This module will allow you to read in their protocol data as an int or a string. The backend stores it as a string (TCP,UDP,ICMP). Natively it will handle these three protocols, but it will scale to any other layer and protocol as a simple handler. Using Net::Connection::Simple, you can use these to populate the multiple layers of the connection.

SEE ALSO ^
