Detailed Interface

Events

icmp_echo_reply
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, id: count, seq: count, payload: string)

Generated for ICMP echo reply messages.

See Wikipedia for more information about the ICMP protocol.

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.
Icmp:Additional ICMP-specific information augmenting the standard connection record c.
Id:The echo reply identifier.
Seq:The echo reply sequence number.
Payload:The message-specific data of the packet payload, i.e., everything after the first 8 bytes of the ICMP header.

See also: icmp_echo_request

icmp_echo_request
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, id: count, seq: count, payload: string)

Generated for ICMP echo request messages.

icmp_error_message
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, code: count, context: icmp_context)

Generated for all ICMPv6 error messages that are not handled separately with dedicated events. Bro’s ICMP analyzer handles a number of ICMP error messages directly with dedicated events. This event acts as a fallback for those it doesn’t.

See Wikipedia for more information about the ICMPv6 protocol.

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.
Icmp:Additional ICMP-specific information augmenting the standard connection record c.
Code:The ICMP code of the error message.
Context:A record with specifics of the original packet that the message refers to.

See also: icmp_unreachable, icmp_packet_too_big, icmp_time_exceeded, icmp_parameter_problem

icmp_neighbor_advertisement
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, router: bool, solicited: bool, override: bool, tgt: addr, options: icmp6_nd_options)

Generated for ICMP neighbor advertisement messages.

See Wikipedia for more information about the ICMP protocol.

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.
Icmp:Additional ICMP-specific information augmenting the standard connection record c.
Router:Flag indicating the sender is a router.
Solicited:Flag indicating advertisement is in response to a solicitation.
Override:Flag indicating advertisement should override existing caches.
Tgt:the Target Address in the soliciting message or the address whose link-layer address has changed for unsolicited adverts.
Options:Any Neighbor Discovery options included with message (RFC 4861).

See also: icmp_router_solicitation, icmp_router_advertisement, icmp_neighbor_solicitation, icmp_redirect

icmp_neighbor_solicitation
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, tgt: addr, options: icmp6_nd_options)

Generated for ICMP neighbor solicitation messages.

See Wikipedia for more information about the ICMP protocol.

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.

icmp_packet_too_big
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, code: count, context: icmp_context)

Generated for ICMPv6 packet too big messages.

See Wikipedia for more information about the ICMPv6 protocol.

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.
Icmp:Additional ICMP-specific information augmenting the standard connection record c.
Code:The ICMP code of the too big message.
Context:A record with specifics of the original packet that the message refers to. Too big messages should include the original IP header from the packet that triggered them, and Bro parses that into the context structure. Note that if the too big includes only a partial IP header for some reason, no fields of context will be filled out.

icmp_parameter_problem
Type:event (c: connection, icmp: icmp_conn, code: count, context: icmp_context)

C:The connection record for the corresponding ICMP flow.
Icmp:Additional ICMP-specific information augmenting the standard connection record c.
Code:The ICMP code of the parameter problem message.
Context:A record with specifics of the original packet that the message refers to. Parameter problem messages should include the original IP header from the packet that triggered them, and Bro parses that into the context structure. Note that if the parameter problem includes only a partial IP header for some reason, no fields of context will be filled out.
