Module Version: v1.4.4   Source   Latest Release: NetPacket-1.5.0

NAME ^

NetPacket::ICMP - Assemble and disassemble ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) packets.

VERSION ^

version 1.4.4

SYNOPSIS ^

  use NetPacket::ICMP;

  $icmp_obj = NetPacket::ICMP->decode($raw_pkt);
  $icmp_pkt = NetPacket::ICMP->encode();
  $icmp_data = NetPacket::ICMP::strip($raw_pkt);

DESCRIPTION ^

NetPacket::ICMP provides a set of routines for assembling and disassembling packets using ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol).

Methods

NetPacket::ICMP->decode([RAW PACKET])

Decode the raw packet data given and return an object containing instance data. This method will quite happily decode garbage input. It is the responsibility of the programmer to ensure valid packet data is passed to this method.

NetPacket::ICMP->encode()

Return an ICMP packet encoded with the instance data specified.

Functions

NetPacket::ICMP::strip([RAW PACKET])

Return the encapsulated data (or payload) contained in the ICMP packet.

Instance data

The instance data for the NetPacket::ICMP object consists of the following fields.

type

The ICMP message type of this packet.

code

The ICMP message code of this packet.

cksum

The checksum for this packet.

data

The encapsulated data (payload) for this packet.

Exports

EXAMPLE ^

The following example prints the ICMP type, code, and checksum fields.

  #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  use strict;
  use Net::PcapUtils;
  use NetPacket::Ethernet qw(:strip);
  use NetPacket::IP qw(:strip);
  use NetPacket::ICMP;

  sub process_pkt {
      my ($user, $hdr, $pkt) = @_;

      my $ip_obj = NetPacket::IP->decode(eth_strip($pkt));
      my $icmp_obj = NetPacket::ICMP->decode(ip_strip($ip_obj));

      print("Type: $icmp_obj->{type}\n");
      print("Code: $icmp_obj->{code}\n");
      print("Checksum: $icmp_obj->{cksum}\n\n");
  }

  Net::PcapUtils::loop(\&process_pkt, FILTER => 'icmp');
