TraceWrangler - Packet Capture Toolkit


TraceWrangler is a network capture file toolkit running on Windows (or on Linux, using WINE) that supports PCAP as well as the new PCAPng file format, which is now the standard file format used by Wireshark. The most prominent use case for TraceWrangler is the easy sanitization and anonymization of PCAP and PCAPng files (sometimes called "trace files", "capture files" or "packet captures"), removing or replacing sensitive data while being easy to use.

There is also a semi-automated build section where you can download current builds. Those builds are usually working better than the latest stable release, but in some cases features may not be implemented completely yet, or still broken. Also, the documentation isn't up to date.

TraceWrangler has some limitations at the moment (which may most likely last a little longer than just "a moment"):
