Frontend for decrypting captured SRTP packets.

Project description

Simple front-end for decrypting captured SRTP and SRTCP packets using:


Install devel libpcap and libsrtp if you need to, e.g.:

sudo apt-get install libpcap-dev libsrtp0-dev

and then:

pip install dsrtp



To e.g. decrypt captured packets and write then back to a capture file:

dsrtp test/fixtures/av.pcap /tmp/rtp.pcap -ld -k test/fixtures/av_material.hex

If you have a cluttered capture (e.g. multiple SRTP streams) then you can select e.g. the in-bound stream by address:port like:

dsrtp test/fixtures/av.pcap /tmp/rtp.pcap -k test/fixtures/av_material.hex -l d -i


To do the same in code:

import dsrtp

enc_km = open('test/fixtures/av_material.hex').read()
km = dsrtp.KeyingMaterial.unpack_hex(enc_km)
p = dsrtp.SRTPPolicy(ssrc_type=dsrtp.SRTPPolicy.SSRC_ANY_INBOUND, key=km.local)

with dsrtp.SRTP(p) as ctx, \
        open('test/fixtures/av.pcap', 'rb') as srtp_pcap, \
        open('/tmp/rtp.pcap', 'wb') as rtp_pcap:
  pkts = dsrtp.read_packets(srtp_pcap)
  decrypted_pkts = dsrtp.decrypt_packets(ctx, pkts)
  dsrtp.write_packets(rtp_pcap, decrypted_pkts)


Create a venv:

mkvirtualenv dsrtp
pip install Cython

then get it:

git clone
cd dsrtp
workon dsrtp
pip install -e .[test]

and test it:

py.test test/ --cov dsrtp --cov-report term-missing --pep8


Tests pass:

py.test test/ --cov dsrtp --cov-report term-missing --pep8

so update __version__ in:

  • dsrtp/

commit and tag it:

git commit -am "release v{version}"
git tag -a v{version} -m "release v{version}"
git push --tags

and travis will publish it to pypi.
