Advanced Network Toolkit for Assessments and Remote Mapping

ANTFARM is a passive network mapping application that utilizes output from existing network examination tools to populate its OSI-modeled database. This data can then be used to form a ‘picture’ of the network being analyzed. ANTFARM is a data fusion tool that does not directly interact with the network. The analyst can use a variety of passive or active data gathering techniques, the outputs of which are loaded into ANTFARM and incorporated into the network map. Data gathering can be limited to completely passive techniques when minimizing the risk of disrupting the operational network is a concern.



Code development takes place from GitHub. The latest source code for each ANTFARM release is mirrored at the RubyForge project as well as SCM.
