Networking by Example with the Packet Construction Set, George Neville-Neil
PCS is a set of Python classes and libraries that is currently used for
network security and conformance testing. The purpose of PCS is to allow
the programmer to express themselves more naturally in network code. All
of the bit shifting and low level manipulation usually associated with
network programming is handled by the library, allowing the programmer
to treat packets as objects, with fields that directly mirror the ones
described in IETF and IEEE documents.
To date PCS has been used to test several protocols, including IGMPv3,
IPv4, IPv6, The Precision Time Protocol, Yahoo Messenger and several others.
In this talk I will cover the basics of PCS, how to get started with it,
and how to use it in your own work.
