Netresec is an independent software vendor with focus on the network security field. We specialize in software for network forensics and analysis of network traffic.

Our most well known product is NetworkMiner, which is available in a professional as well as free open source version. We also develop and maintain other software tools, such as CapLoader (for big pcap files) and RawCap (a lightweight sniffer).

We at Netresec additionally maintain a comprehensive list of publicly available pcap files.

NetworkMiner logo


NetworkMiner is a Network Forensic Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows. NetworkMiner can be used as a passive network sniffer/packet capturing tool in order to detect operating systems, sessions, hostnames, open ports etc. without putting any traffic on the network. NetworkMiner can also parse PCAP files for off-line analysis and to regenerate/reassemble transmitted files and certificates from PCAP files.

CapLoader logo


CapLoader is a Windows tool designed to handle large amounts of captured network traffic in the tcpdump/libpcap format (PCAP). CapLoader displays the contents of opened PCAP files as a list of TCP and UDP flows. Users can select the flows of interest and quickly filter out those packets from the loaded PCAP files. Sending the selected flows/packets to a packet analyzer tool like Wireshark or NetworkMiner is then just a mouse click away.

PolarProxy logo


PolarProxy is a transparent TLS and SSL inspection proxy created for incident responders, malware analysts and security researchers. PolarProxy is primarily designed to intercept and decrypt TLS encrypted traffic from malware that is run in a controlled environment, such as a sandbox. PolarProxy decrypts and re-encrypts TLS traffic, while also saving the decrypted traffic in a PCAP file.

Additional software from Netresec can be found on our products page.
