I am glad to announce the release of PktAnon 1.2.0 - a tool for profile-based network trace anonymization of pcap/tcpdump traces.

PktAnon supports a large number of protocol and anonymization primitives. All fields of a protocol can be addressed using PktAnon, therefore making PktAnon highly flexible. The anonymization is configured through XML profiles and allows arbitrary mappings of network protocol fields to anonymization primitives. Anonymization of live traffic is as well supported as interplay with other tools such as e.g. tcpreplay for live replay of anonymized network traffic.

PktAnon is available from http://www.tm.uka.de/pktanon Feedback and cooperation is highly welcome!

Please note that this is a development release and not yet in a final state. Therefore care must be taken when releasing anonymized network traces.

Best regards,
