NAME

NetPacket::ARP - Assemble and disassemble ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) packets.

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 1.4.1

SYNOPSIS



  use NetPacket::ARP;

  $tcp_obj = NetPacket::ARP->decode($raw_pkt);
  $tcp_pkt = NetPacket::ARP->encode(params...);   # Not implemented



DESCRIPTION

NetPacket::ARP provides a set of routines for assembling and disassembling packets using ARP (Address Resolution Protocol).

    Methods

NetPacket::ARP->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::ARP->encode(param => value) Return a ARP packet encoded with the instance data specified. Not implemented.

    Functions

NetPacket::ARP::strip([RAW PACKET]) Return the encapsulated data (or payload) contained in the TCP packet. Since no payload data is encapulated in an ARP packet (only instance data), this function returns undef.

    Instance data

The instance data for the NetPacket::ARP object consists of the following fields.
htype Hardware type.
proto Protocol type.
hlen Header length.
plen Protocol length.
opcode One of the following constants:
o ARP_OPCODE_REQUEST
o ARP_OPCODE_REPLY
o RARP_OPCODE_REQUEST
o RARP_OPCODE_REPLY
sha Source hardware address.
spa Source protocol address.
tha Target hardware address.
tpa Target protocol address.

    Exports

default none
exportable none
tags The following tags group together related exportable items.
:ALL All the above exportable items.

EXAMPLE

Print out arp requests on the local network.



  #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  use Net::PcapUtils;
  use NetPacket::Ethernet qw(:types);
  use NetPacket::ARP;

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

    my $eth_obj = NetPacket::Ethernet->decode($pkt);

    if ($eth_obj->{type} == ETH_TYPE_ARP) {
        my $arp_obj = NetPacket::ARP->decode($eth_obj->{data}, $eth_obj);
        print("source hw addr=$arp_obj->{sha}, " .
              "dest hw addr=$arp_obj->{tha}\n");
    }
  }



Net::PcapUtils::loop(\&process_pkt);

TODO

Implement encode() function
Does this work for protocols other than IP? Need to read RFC.
Example is a bit silly
