TCPShark (WIP)

tcpshark is a tcpdump-like utility, with an extra feature: it stores the process id, the command and the arguments as a trailer for each Ethernet frame. For now, only TCP and UDP Ethernet packets are supported.

Tested on recent versions of Linux, Mac and Windows.

libpcap or equivelant (npcap for Windows) is required.

tcpshark

The trailer can be parsed via the lua script tcpshark.lua, which can be added to wireshark's plugin system, or directly injected in each run via -X option in wireshark (look below for examples). There's also an excellent video on loading custom dissectors for Wireshark here:

Wireshark Custom Dissectors

Usage:
  tcpshark [OPTIONS]

tcpshark:
  -o, --outfile=         Output pcap file path. Use '-' for stdout
  -i, --interface=       Interface to use. Only supports Ethernet type packets interfaces. Do not use it on SPANs (default: lo)
  -f, --bpf=             tcpdump-style BPF filter
  -v, --verbosity=       Verbosity of the metadata: 0 - only pid, 1 - pid and cmd, 2 - pid, cmd and args (default: 1)
  -l, --list-interfaces  List available interfaces and exit
  -d, --lua-dissector    Print the Lua dissector used in Wireshark

Live capture in local system

git clone https://github.com/mosajjal/tcpshark
cd tcpshark
go get
go build .
sudo ./tcpshark -i eth0 -o - -v 2 | wireshark -X lua_script:tcpshark.lua -Y tcpshark -k -i -

Live capture through SSH

scp tcpshark HOSTNAME:/tmp/tcpshark
ssh HOSTNAME sudo /tmp/tcpshark -i eth0 -o - -v 2 --bpf="'not port 22'" | wireshark -X lua_script:tcpshark.lua -Y tcpshark -k -i -

Offline pcap

sudo ./tcpshark -i eth0 -o /tmp/test.pcapng
