Nemesis – Packet Injection Suite

Outsmart Malicious Hackers

Nemesis is a command-line network packet crafting and injection utility for UNIX-like and Windows systems. Nemesis, is well suited for testing Network Intrusion Detection Systems, firewalls, IP stacks and a variety of other tasks. As a command-line driven utility, Nemesis is perfect for automation and scripting.

Nemesis can natively craft and inject packets for:

  • ARP
  • DNS
  • ICMP
  • IGMP
  • IP
  • OSPF
  • RIP
  • TCP
  • UDP

Using the IP and the Ethernet injection modes, almost any custom packet can be crafted and injected.

Unix-like systems require: libnet-1.0.2a, and a C compiler (GCC)
Windows systems require: libnetNT-1.0.2g and WinPcap

    In the title and tags should be Nemesis rather than Nemisis.

    I’ve used Nemesis in the past, while teaching an IDS class. It’s a pretty good tool for creating arbitrary packets. I usually set up whatever header and payload the students need to detect, then just run it in a shell loop so it sends the same packets over and over. Works like a charm, and it’s pretty simple to get going.
