rf tap

What is RFtap?

RFtap is a simple protocol designed to provide Radio Frequency (RF) metadata about packets, such as:

Accurate signal and noise power Accurate timing and phase information Accurate Carrier and Doppler frequencies of every packet, and more. RFtap bridges the gap between Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms (such as GNU Radio, Pothos, liquidsdr, LuaRadio) and conventional network monitoring and packet analysis tools (such as Wireshark, TShark, tcpdump, Scapy), allowing the access and manipulation of novel RF metadata from packets while remaining within the comfortable and mature environment of conventional networking tools.
