View Full Version : Monitoring shared library use

October 24th, 2009, 01:29 PM

I am a university student researching possible ways to monitor a local systems network traffic & content. I am looking into the idea of monitoring network activity through shared libraries at a higher level than the network layer.

Does anyone have any idea's or advice on ways in which this could be done?

I was thinking of something along the lines of creating my own simple shared library (or editing an existing one) which would log requests/responses from the socket library in question (libc?) to a text file, then pass on this information to where it was originally going.

Any input and advice would be very much appreciated. With permission I would also like to include responses in my report, gratifying any contributors.

Thank you,
