I am working on an implementation of the UDP Options draft at work, this
morning I got the
udp_input side of processing building. This needs to be
test and gotten working before moving on, before setting up some VMs to test
this I need a way to generate packets with UDP Option data appended.
This seemed like a great occasion to use
go a little more. There is the
gopacket library from google that provides raw packet stuff.
I tried for ages to put together a send example that didn't depend on linux.
Eventually I got to the point where I could form crazy malformed arp packets. I
got to the point of generating the above traces in
wireshark, for some reason
go was sticking 16 bytes into the address fields and creating madness. You will
note in the above arp packet that the length is much longer, that is because go
is appending some extra data for shits and giggles.
Giving up on go I had a look at the python libraries for generating packets,
they are all about the same level of insanity. The pathspider project has
some test probes for UDP Options using
pathspider is a lot of stuff to pull in to generate UDP datagrams, I
extracted out the relevant stuff to use with
from scapy.all import IP from scapy.all import UDP from scapy.all import * if __name__ == "__main__": ip = IP(src="22.214.171.124", dst="126.96.36.199") udp = UDP(sport=2600, dport=2600) pkt = ip/udp/"Hello world" pkt.getlayer(1).len = len(pkt.getlayer(1)) #force UDP len send((pkt/"\x01\x01\x01\x00"))
You can add the numbers together to find that the extra option space is
include, you can also see the
01 01 01 00 bytes at the end of the packet
which are the options I add.
