Python implementation of the Spinning Cube of Potential Doom.

Project Description

NetCube is a tool for visualizing network traffic in three dimensions. It is inspired by the Spinning Cube of Potential Doom and was originally developed back in 2005.

NetCube requires:
  • pcapy (requires libpcap or winpcap)
  • OpenGL
  • pygame

It uses pcapy to capture packets via libpcap allowing the use of the same filters used by tcpdump and part of Ethereal. After capturing a packet, NetCube adds it to a list to be rendered as a pixel within a 3d cube. Each axis corresponds to a different parameter of the packet. At present these are the source address, the destination address, and the port number. The color of the pixel corresponds to the vertical axis (port number) in order to make the diagram more readable as it rotates.

A quick start guide is available for first time users and bug reports can be filed at the home page listed below. For those who wish to find the unstable code, the development version is available from the subversion trunk. Be sure to run setup.py develop after checking out the code.

Release notes are available on the trac wiki at ReleaseNotes.
