  Description     : an active sniffer

Angst is an active sniffer, based on libpcap and libnet. Angst provides methods
for aggressive sniffing on switched local area network environments. It dumps
the payload of all the TCP packets received on the specified ports. Moreover, it
implements methods for active sniffing. Angst currently provides two active
sniffing methods. The first monitors ARP requests, and after enabling IP
forwarding on the local host, sends ARP replies mapping all IPs to the local MAC
address. The second method floods the local network with random MAC addresses
(like macof v1.1 by Ian Vitek), causing switches to send packets to all ports.
