Undressing Ping presented at BSidesHarrisburg 2019

by Terrill Frantz,

Summary : In this session we uncover the workings of the ping utility. How exactly does it work? We will dig into ICMP and create our own custom ping utility in Python and — out of respect for those techs going before us — in Perl. We’ll watch the ICMP echo traffic using Wireshark as our magical microscope.
