Extract files from captured TCP sessions
tcpextract is a tool to extract files from captured TCP sessions. Support live streams and pcap files.

Supported protocols are:

- HTTP (GET)

Install

Gentoo users:

You should first enable the Abnorm Overlay then you can install it:

Using pip:

pip install tcpextract

Manual installation and git installation:

To manually install last stable release or older releases dowload the tarball and extract it:

 tar xzvvf tcpextract-*.tar.gz
 cd tcpextract-*
 sudo python setup.py install


To install from git please run:

 git clone https://github.com/faust/tcpextract.git
 cd tcpextract
 sudo python setup.py install


Usage

When you run tcpextract, by default, it will listen on any avaible interface and will put extracted files in './output'. Please remember that capturing live streams will require root privileges. Live sniffing is really slow. If you can, use tcpdump or something else to capture data.

If you want further information on how to change default behavior please run:

 tcpextract --help

Extending

tcpextract is modular, so it is easy to extend.

If you are looking for further information about writing modules to support more protocols please read the Wiki
