Hping

Hping is a free packet generator and analyzer for the distributed IP protocol. It is one of the de facto tools for security auditing and the testing of services and networks. It is a “Swiss Army knife” that generates virtually any IP, TCP or UPD packet. Hping can transmit a single packet, or multiple packets being sent at a specified rate or a maximal ‘flood’ rate. These features are possible because Hping opens ‘raw sockets’ injecting traffic directly to the network card and bypassing the operating system TCP/IP stack, with all its regulations and limitations. It is typically used in Linux but can also be used in Windows. Hping3 is the latest version.

 

Hping is used to run a UDP (--udp) flood (--flood) against a domain on port 80 (--dstport 80) with large packet size (--data 1400)
