Bismark Tools

Bismark-active

bismark-active (and its dependencies) is probably the only package
that’s generally relevant. All of the other ones are fairly BISmark
specific or have privacy/human subjects research implications. You may
find some of them (i.e. bismark-lua) interesting, however.

Let us know if you’ve got any questions.

We’ve spent some effort making it easier to load packages containing
temporary experiments on the router, from a changing set of experiments
published by Georgia Tech, as well as allowing users to opt into/install
these packages on their own. This is provided by:

bismark-experiments-manager
bismark-updater

Packages with names ending with ‘-tmpfs’ are installed on /tmp, and so
can be installed/updated frequently. bismark-updater handles updating
experiments packages and other packages identified for update
automatically.

Active measurements are essentially the same, except we have a -tmpfs
package for the experiment manager above:

bismark-active
bismark-active-tmpfs

We’ve ditched scp in favor of a POST to an HTTP URL for data
transmission back to Georgia Tech. This is provided by:

bismark-data-transmit

BISmark on-router web pages – same idea as cerowrt-chrome:

bismark-chrome

Our Lua libraries (bmlua.*):

bismark-lua

Management/remote control stuff – bdm prober, ssh key, and ssh tunnel
setup stuff, as before:

bismark-mgmt

Metapackages to pull in a bunch of network measurement tool packages and
other useful tools, respectively – see the DEPENDS:

bismark-netexp
bismark-extras

### NOTE WELL – PLEASE DO NOT BUILD THE FOLLOWING:
###

### The following three packages, containing ‘passive’ in their name,

### require documented consent of users to participate in a Georgia Tech

### research project associated with software packages. Please do not

### build these or make them available. If you know of someone

### interested in these projects, please have them contact us to

### participate.
###

### These two packages gather information passively from traffic passing

### through br-lan, including MAC addresses, packet size and arrival

### times, and volumes of traffic to/from particular ports and

### particular (whitelisted) domains. “http-url” also includes a hash of

### the URL for HTTP traffic.
###

### bismark-passive-http-url-tmpfs

### bismark-passive-tmpfs
###

### ucap is a tool that allows users to manage bandwidth caps in the home

### network using openflow – it also does passive traffic analysis.
###

### bismark-passive-ucap

Deprecated (and we should remove them):

bismark-chrome-new
bismark-lite
