Captured data are saved as a PCAP file format in the external storage.
If you want a more detailed analysis, please transfer the file to your PC and use the software handles PCAP format(such as Wireshark).
★ Differences between tPacketCapture and tPacketCapture Pro ★
Pro Version include an Application filtering feature.
Application filtering is able to capture only a specific application communication.
Not that feature rich as Wireshark yet, but it's a powerful debugging tool especially when developing an app.
- Capture network packets and record them.
- SSL decryption using man-in-the-middle technique.
- No root required.
- Easy to use.
- Show packet in either hex or text.
You don't need to setup a dedicated proxy server like mitmproxy, Fiddler or Charles. All you need is just your Android device.
** How to get rid of PIN number **
If you want to get rid of entering PIN number on a lock screen after Packet Capture is uninstalled, it is needed to clear credential storage.
Go to OS Setting->Security->Clear credentials
Please note that external hardware (i.e., a USB Sniffer accessory/device) is required to actually capture frames. However, application features can be tried out using the test mode.
* Capture 802.15.4 frames (by using a sniffer 15.4 accessory/device).
* Display captured frames.
* Filtering (by frame type, source address, destination address, and payload).
* Store captured frames on phone memory for future display.
* Export captured frames to PCAP format (Wireshark compatible).
* Live forwarding to an arbitrary IP address using the Zigbee Encapsulation Protocol (ZEP).
* Test mode (to try out application functionality without a sniffer 15.4 accessory/device).
To actually sniff packets you can use the following hardware:
- A Tmote Sky (a.k.a TelosB) configured as a sniffer 15.4 device; or
- A SEED-EYE board configured as a sniffer 15.4 accessory
In general, the SEED-EYE board should work on every Android device (3.1+), while the Tmote Sky works only on Android devices supporting the USB host mode (e.g., the Samsung Galaxy Nexus).
* Nexus S (Tmote sky *not* supported, you must use a SEED-EYE board)
* Galaxy Nexus

ATTENTION: Some versions of Android, especially on Samsung stock ROMs, may have restrictive SELinux policies that may prevent this app from working. We are working hard to resolve or provide workarounds for this.
In the meantime, if you find this app is not working due to permission denied errors when you in fact do have root, it is likely due to a prohibitive SELinux policy being enforced. You can disable SELinux enforcing by executing 'setenforce 0' in a root shell.
Please do not leave a bad rating/review due to the decision of some device ROMs to enforce restrictive SELinux policies. As mentioned, we are working hard to resolve/workaround these issues. Feel free to use the in-app 'Report Bug/Feedback' option to provide useful information to help us out.
Please do not use the reviews to request features or report issues. If you have a request for Language Translations, features or want to report a bug, use the in-app Report Bug/Feedback option or send e-mail to email@example.com.
Wondering when and to where your Android apps are connecting across the Internet? Look no further! Network Log is for you!
Network Log monitors iptables-logging to display a real-time list of which apps are making network connections, and provides statistics about those app connections.
★ Real-time log display
The log tab shows the network packets being transmitted and their details such as:
* source and destination addresses/ports
* network protocol and interface
* bytes transmitted
★ Real-time network usage statistics
The Apps tab lists installed applications along with network usage statistics such as:
* total packets and bytes sent
* active network throughput speed in Bps/Kbps/Mbps
* timestamp of last connection
* list of all the unique connections made by each app
* sortable and filterable packets/bytes counters
★ Real-time connection notifications
The statusbar icon's up/down arrows will highlight when upload/download traffic occurs, and the notification drop-down shade displays the connection throughput speed in Kbps.
You can also configure toast pop-up notifications on a per-app basis that will pop-up a temporary notification containing connection details no matter which app you are in.
Click an app in either tab to see time-lines of its connections.
Select the 'Apps Timeline' menu item to see an over-all time-line of all apps.
Adjustable interval from 1 ms to 48 hours for summing data:
* to see each packet, set to 1 ms
* for Kbps, set to 1 second
* for Kb-per-hour, set to 1 hour; etc
Adjustable pinch-zoomable and scrollable graphs.
Note: While the app itself is designed to use minimal CPU/battery, you can further reduce the CPU/battery use by exiting the app after starting the logging service.

Keep on stumbling.
The program includes:
-ARP Cache viewer
-Port Scanner (7 supports scanning methods)
As well as a set of programs for viewing and analyzing network traffic. More details about the features and options of the program you can read help on the application.
The application is working implementation of the tool discussed in this research paper "Android phone based appraisal of app behavior on cell networks" (http://dl.acm.org/citation.cfm?id=2593916)
Quantifying an application’s signaling eﬃciency requires information about:
The data packets that were exchanged.
Corresponding RRC state transitions.
Unlike the existing applications and tools, this application neither requires any special hardware, nor retrieves RRC state in an oﬄine manner using a simulator. The functionality of the tool is split into two parts, the Packet Sniffer and the RRC State Logger.
The packet sniﬀer uses C_packetCapture a binary executable of libpcap, built using libpcap source code and Android NDK. The executable is launched in a shell with superuser privileges. The packet sniﬀer enables us to capture all uplink and downlink packets associated with a network interface, and stores the packet timestamp and header information corresponding to IP, UDP, TCP, and ICMP protocols, in a log.text ﬁle.
RRC State Logger
For Retrieving RRC States, we adopt a novel approach to ﬁnd and record the actual RRC state of the device at any given instant. Android Secret codes are required to switch to RRC service mode. The resulting RRC state transitions with timestamp are stored in a dump.txt file on sdcard.Currently we have secret codes for limited samsung devices, though a wide variety of secret codes are available for different manufacturers.
The detailed description of calculating an application's signalling efficiency from the data collected using our app (RRCpacketSniffer) has been described in this paper "Android phone based appraisal of app behavior on cell networks".
Currently the application supports all Samsung devices ranging from Galaxy S to Galaxy S5. We are working on getting support for other brand devices as well. All devices would require root permission.
