Xplico is a NFAT or Network Forensics Analysis Tool that is designed to either capture traffic in real time sessions or to provide an interface to upload PCAP (Packet Capture Data) files for analysis. The current version in Backtrack Linux 5 release 3 is 0.7 however the latest Xplico version is Xplico 1.0.1. I believe there are some dependencies required in the later versions of Xplico so I will write an updated article once Backtrack 6 comes up and the latest version of Xplico can easily be installed.
PBNJ is made ip of two commands which are scanpbnj and outputpbnj. The manpages for both scanpbnj and outputpbnj are located in collapsed tables at the bottom of this post in case you want more details. When you run scanpbnj it technically a script that runs nmap and dumps the results to a database. The scanpbnj command will store results in various database formats including CSV, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Once the results are stored you can pull the results from the database using outputpbnj which can output report style results in CSV format, tab delimited format, or HTML format. Continue reading below for more details regarding outputpbnj and scanpbnj on Backtrack Linux 5 r2.
I was attempting to view the contents of what I thought was a SQLite3 database file so I needed a GUI of some sort to do so. Anyhow first I decided to install SQLite. Once I did this and created a test database to make sure to SQLite GUI was working I finally decided the file I was trying to open was not a SQLite3 database file.
One of the larger projects I am working on recently decided to switch from Assembla to Redmine for project management. There are many advantages to Redmine versus Assembla the largest being cross project management for Redmine and in Assembla projects are completely isolated. There are some others that our team finds extremely useful including the stuff to do plugin for Redmine that allows for drag and drop priorities for tickets. It is also going to be nice to finally be in complete control of backing up our data, making changes, uptime, etc.
The below specifically applies to Assembla however can be used for any trac project that is on a remote server. At first I was under the assumption I would have to install trac, have it up and running, and then import into Redmine. This is not the case as the Redmine task will use the directory structure to do all the importing so you only need to backup the trac directory on the remote server and then copy it to the new Redmine server.
