Daisho open source multitool for phy layer monitoring

Posted on Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013 in data transfer, open source, Videos by the machinegeek


At the recently concluded TROOPERS13 conference in Heidelberg, Germany, presenters Michael Ossmann and Dominic Spill revealed the details on their Project Daisho, an open source hardware and software project to build a device that can monitor high speed communication links and pass all of the data back to a host system for analysis. They describe, “a passive tapping circuit can be used to monitor a 100BASE-TX connection, but no such circuit exists for 1000BASE-T networks. Daisho will include a modular, high bandwidth design that can be extended to monitor future technologies. The project will also produce the first open source USB 3.0 FPGA core, bringing high speed data transfer to any projects that build on the open platform.
