Xtract attempts to demonstrate how Wireshark's powerful network traffic analysis capabilities can be combined with the file carving capabilities of programs such as Foremost and NetworkMiner in a manner that is portable and extensible (hence the choice of Perl). Specifically, it offers: automated extraction of network stream sessions; visualization of networks via GraphViz; and integration of file carving capability. The scripts are intended as a proof-of-concept for how tedious tasks of reassembling TCP/UDP streams from network capture files and file carving based on these streams can be automated.
