Ronny Lampert, "Implementierung einer IPFIX/PSAMP Probe," Bachelor Thesis, Department of Computer Science, Friedrich–Alexander University of Erlangen–Nuremberg (FAU), June 2005. (Advisor: Falko Dressler)


The following paper discusses a software package named VERMONT allowing to turn a standard PC into an IPFIX/PSAMP probe. IPFIX and PSAMP are newly created protocolls being in active specification through the IETF deemed as successors for NetFlowV9. Their purpose is the supervision of networking components and logging of connection data in IP-based networks. The primary goal of this work was to develop a probe capable of processing traffic in high speed networks and to export the gathered data to a central instance with respect to distributed intrusion detection. A second goal was to use aggregation to reduce the gathered data streams while still retaining all information. VERMONT integrates three previously independent parts to fullfill the described functionality under a consistend configuration interface. Profiling data was used to improve the source code quality, and work was done to improve the modules' reliability. To evaluate the design some tests were conducted with respect to interoperability and performance showing that VERMONT is currently not capable to process high speed network traffic withouth packet loss. Aggregation is robust and interoperates with existing products like nProbe or NetFlowV9 encoded data.
