    Packet Sender is a free open-source (GPLv2) cross-platform (Windows, Mac, Linux) tool used daily by security researchers, college students, and professional developers to troubleshoot and reverse engineer network-based devices. Its core features are crafting and listening for UDP, TCP, and SSL/TLS packets via IPv4 or IPv6. It can listen simultaneously on any number of ports while sending to any UDP, TCP, SSL/TLS packet server. It is available for direct download or through the Winget, Homebrew, Debian, or Snap repos.

He is the author and inventor of Packet Sender, an app used daily by security researchers, featured in manuals from major tech companies, and is taught in universities around the world. He is also the author of 2 network-related patents and a book published by CRC Press. His open source contributions have received international awards, and he has presented at many developer conferences about them.
