NAME

NetPacket::ICMPv6 - Assemble and disassemble ICMPv6 (Internet Control Message Protocol for IPv6) packets.

VERSION

version 1.7.2

SYNOPSIS

  use NetPacket::ICMPv6;

  $icmpv6_obj = NetPacket::ICMPv6->decode($raw_pkt);
  $icmpv6_pkt = NetPacket::ICMPv6->encode($ipv6_pkt);
  $icmpv6_data = NetPacket::ICMPv6::strip($raw_pkt);

DESCRIPTION

NetPacket::ICMPv6 provides a set of routines for assembling and disassembling packets using ICMPv6 (Internet Control Message Protocol for IPv6).

Methods

NetPacket::ICMPv6->decode([RAW PACKET])

Decode the raw packet data given and return an object containing instance data. This method will quite happily decode garbage input. It is the responsibility of the programmer to ensure valid packet data is passed to this method.

NetPacket::ICMPv6->encode($ipv6_obj)

Return an ICMPv6 packet encoded with the instance data specified. Needs parts of the IPv6 header contained in $ipv6_obj in order to calculate the ICMPv6 checksum.

Functions

NetPacket::ICMPv6::strip([RAW PACKET])

Return the encapsulated data (or payload) contained in the ICMPv6 packet.

Instance data

The instance data for the NetPacket::ICMPv6 object consists of the following fields.

type

The ICMPv6 message type of this packet.

code

The ICMPv6 message code of this packet.

cksum

The checksum for this packet.

data

The encapsulated data (payload) for this packet.

EXAMPLE

The following example prints the ICMPv6 type, code, and checksum fields.

  #!/usr/bin/perl

  use strict;
  use warnings;
  use Net::PcapUtils;
  use NetPacket::Ethernet qw(:strip);
  use NetPacket::IPv6 qw(:strip);
  use NetPacket::ICMPv6;

  sub process_pkt {
      my ($user, $hdr, $pkt) = @_;

      my $icmpv6_obj = NetPacket::ICMPv6->decode(ipv6_strip(eth_strip($pkt)));

      print("Type: $icmpv6_obj->{type}\n");
      print("Code: $icmpv6_obj->{code}\n");
      print("Checksum: $icmpv6_obj->{cksum}\n\n");
  }

  Net::PcapUtils::loop(\&process_pkt, FILTER => 'icmp6');
