  Description     : Packet generator/sniffer and network scanner/discovery

Scapy is a powerful interactive packet manipulation tool, packet
generator, network scanner, network discovery, packet sniffer, etc. It
can for the moment replace hping, 85% of nmap, arpspoof, arp-sk, arping,
tcpdump, tethereal, p0f, .... 

In scapy you define a set of packets, then it sends them, receives
answers, matches requests with answers and returns a list of packet couples 
(request, answer) and a list of unmatched packets. This has the big advantage 
over tools like nmap or hping that an answer is not reduced to 
(open/closed/filtered), but is the whole packet.
