GDPR Compliance for your Pcap files
all stacks, all layers

SafePCAP is a scriptable L2-L7 Pcap anonymizer, sanitizer, scrambler, universal full-stack editor and a GDPR Compliance Solution. It allows for easy editing of packet capture data at any stack layer while fully preserving the packets integrity. Data modifications are done in a break-proof manner with the lengths, checksums, offsets and all other service fields auto-recalculated for all affected protocol layers. A file sanitized with SafePcap allows for effective forensic analysis with commonly used pcap analysis tools like Wireshark™. Automation is fully supported via SafePCAP CLI.

Hundreds of protocol stacks are supported. Full support for all 3G/LTE 3GPP Mobile Core protocols and interfaces including SS7, RANAP, DIAMETER, and VoLTE. For example, the following command scrambles IMSI values by replacing German "262" MCC (Mobile Country Code) prefix with "310" (US) using RegExes:

SafePCAP is a GDPR compliance solution for Pcap files

Key Features
WYSIWYG Packet Editing

Visually edit a captured packet at any stack layer. Obfuscate any field. Add/Delete an optional field of the packet with a click.

Auto Anonymization

Pre-programmed anonymization commands. With a few clicks obfuscate IP addresses at all layers (L2-L4), phone and IMSI numbers, texts, email addresses, etc.

Custom Data Obfuscation

Use a RegEx to target specific data at a specific field of a specific protocol layer for editing/obfuscation. Easily create custom obfuscation functions.

Auto Dependencies ReCalc

Dependencies in the modified data are recalculated automatically. No worry about offsets, checksums, encoding, etc.

Total Automation

Automation is supported. To repeat a multi-step editing/scrubbing operation, run each step from a CLI in a batch file.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between SafePCAP and WireEdit?

Both tools are created by Omnipacket. WireEdit is a demo Desktop application available for a free download. It can be used free of charge for any purpose. SafePCAP is a commercial product. SafePCAP features and capabilities are a superset of WireEdit features and capabilities. The major additional SafePCAP features/capabilities: pcapng format support, native builds for Linux and OSX, support for large files (> 2 Gig), hundreds of additional protocols, fine-grained replace operations, higher speed of execution, GDPR Compliance algorithms, CLI, enterprise level support.

What is GDPR?

GDPR stands for General Data Protection Regulation. It's a new EU cunsumer data protection law. More about GDPR here...

What data is considered sensitive in Pcap files?

IP Addresses, Port Numbers, Phone Numbers, IMSIs numbers, emails, passwords, texts, HTTP headers, etc. In fact, data at any stack layer could be considered sensitive in some use cases. SafePcap allows anonymizing data of any type at any stack layer. Specific values of specific named fields at a specific network stack layer could be targeted for bulk anonymization.

What is the difference between SafePCAP and other packet editing tools?

You could think of SafePCAP as a Microsoft Word™ for network packets. All other packet editing tools are very limited in their ability to edit binary encoded stack layers above TCP/UDP. SafePCAP is a full-stack packet editor by design.

What is the difference between SafePCAP and other Pcap anonymizers?

Other tools can't anonymize binary encoded stack layers above UDP/TCP. Instead, they take a simplistic approach of zeroing them out. This approach is far from ideal for many use cases. For example, it makes an effective analysis of anonymized 3GPP Mobile Core Pcap files impossible.

A popular opinion on the Subj is expressed here. Our response is here. SafePcap by design allows editing/obfuscation of any field at any stack layer above TCP/UDP without breaking packets integrity.

Are there any limitations on what network protocols could be supported by SafePcap?

No, provided we have the specs.
