    Mallet is an intercepting proxy for arbitrary protocols (by sensepost)

    That's pretty neat! I'm keen to see how you integrated the Wireshark Dissectors with a Java host. It's something I thought about for Mallet (, but never followed through because I didn't see how the dissectors could be used to reconstruct a modified packet. i.e. from my understanding, they were one-way only?

  • luaj

    Lightweight, fast, Java-centric Lua interpreter written for JME and JSE, with string, table, package, math, io, os, debug, coroutine & luajava libraries, JSR-223 bindings, all metatags, weak tables and unique direct lua-to-java-bytecode compiling.

    I did see that there is a JSR-223 implementation of Lua at, and contemplated using that for dissection if nothing else, but then realised that the bulk of Wireshark/tshark's dissectors are still in C, and didn't want to go down the JNA/JNI route.
