Traffic generator

Mausezahn is a fast traffic generator which allows you
to send nearly every possible and impossible packet. It
is mainly used to test VoIP or multicast networks but also
for security audits to check whether your systems are
hardened enough for specific attacks.

Mausezahn can be used for example:
  * As traffic generator (e. g. to stress multicast networks)
  * To precisely measure jitter (delay variations) between two hosts
    (e. g. for VoIP-SLA verification)
  * As didactical tool during a datacom lecture or for lab exercises
  * For penetration testing of firewalls and IDS
  * For DoS attacks on networks (for audit purposes of course)
  * To find bugs in network software or appliances
  * For reconnaissance attacks using ping sweeps and port scans
  * To test network behaviour under strange circumstances
    (stress test, malformed packets, ...)
