Cloning traffic to simulate attacks/vulnerabilities

Not applicable


Has anyone ever tried to clone malicious traffic sent through the palo-alto firewall to try to re-simulate attacks or exploit vulnerabilities?

If you have, can you share your experience in how you did it?

Just trying to research on some ideas of how to seek exploit possibile vulnerabilities based on traffic that I might think is malicious.

If you need some more info, let me know.




I usually use "Colasoft Packet Player".

if you have exploit packet capture like exploit.pcap, then , use that tool. you can 'replay' that packet capture by sending it to the PA in TAP mode interface.

then PA will detect the attack.

thank you

You can always get a packet capture of the specific traffic you want and replay it through a device with TCPreplay or Scapy.
