A tool for network enumeration, protection, observation and domination. Omphalos makes use of passive and active portscanning, DNS/DHCP/Zeroconf server interrogation, portknock detection, covert channel detection and establishment, ARP scanning, automatic WEP cracking, man-in-the-middling, and a whole host of other tricks. GPS integration? Oh yes. Coordination across multiple interfaces? Of course. Use of Linux's MMAP_RX_SOCKET and MMAP_TX_SOCKET? Wouldn't have it any other way. Userspace networking is made visible to the host via a TUN/TAP device. While designed as an offensive tool, omphalos has proven useful for network debugging and troubleshooting, as well as experimentation.
