  • IT Pro Tuesday #155 - Carrier Lookup, Network Podcast, Identification Tool & More
    pyWhat enables you to easily identify emails, IP addresses and more. Feed it a .pcap file or some mysterious text or hex of a file, and it will tell you what it is. The tool is recursive, so it can identify everything in text, files and more. A shout out to the tool's author for sharing his creation.

    I have a large python project (github.com/ciphey/ciphey) and I am exploring moving it all over to Rust :)
  • The Cyber Swiss Army Knife - a web app for encryption, encoding, compression and data analysis
    For everything related to encryption, I personally recommend using Ciphey as Cyberchef can be quite slow depending on the size of the content.

    Nope! PyWhat is offline. You may also like Ciphey, which is like magic but crazy powerful https://github.com/ciphey/ciphey

    Take a look at ciphey and play with it a bit
  • Philosopher cipher
    If you want a code cracked, in case of #2, there are many resources online and offline that can help you solve this. One of them is the excellent /r/codes subreddit, which may be able to point you in the right direction. Also interesting is Ciphey, which can identify and decrypt a lot of codes.
