ABSTRACT: for some silly reason, people commonly think that libraries like "libpcap", "libdnet", and libnids" are difficult to use, yet they're not. developing skills with these libraries and combining them with "libevent" allows you to develop many networking tools and widgets such as scanners, sniffers, and other recon toolkits. this talk will introduce these libraries and show how they can be combined using event driven programming paradigms. the development language will be in C, although python extensions will also be introduced.
