Replay captured USB packets from .pcap file.
Convert a .pcap file (captured USB packets) to Python or C code that replays the captured USB commands.
Supported packet sources are: * Linux Wireshark (via usbmon) * Windows Wireshark (via USBPcap)
Supported output formats are: * libusb Python (primary) * (libusb C: fixme) * (Linux Kernel C: fixme) * JSON
Example applications: * Rapidly reverse engineer and re-implement USB protocols * Record a proprietary Windows programming sequence and replay on an embedded Linux device * Snoop USB-serial packets

# Installation Its currenlty only tested under Ubuntu Linux, but probably works under Windows. If someone sends instructions I’ll add them here
` # Do one of these # Easier to setup, but slower sudo pip install python-pcapng # Much faster, but no longer maintained sudo apt-get install -y python-libpcap git clone https://github.com/JohnDMcMaster/usbrply.git cd usbrply sudo python setup.py install `
# Sample workflows
Sample workflow for capturing Windows traffic and replaying traffic in Python: * Install Wireshark. Make sure you install the USBPcap library * Start Wireshark * Connect USB device to computer * Start catpure * Start your application, do your thing, etc to generate packets * Close application * Stop capture * Save capture. Save in pcap-ng format (either should work) * Close Wireshark * Run: “usbrply –device-hi -p my.pcapng >replay.py” * Linux: run “python replay.py” * Verify expected device behavior. Did an LED blink? Did you get expected data back?
Sample workflow for capturing Windows VM traffic from Linux host and replaying traffic in Python: * Example: program a Xilinx dev board under Linux without knowing anything about the JTAG adapter USB protocol * Linux: Install Wireshark * Linux: Enable usbmon so Wireshark can capture USB (sudo modprobe usbmon, see http://wiki.wireshark.org/CaptureSetup/USB) * Linux: Boot Windows VM (ie through VMWare) * Linux: Start Wireshark. Make sure you have USB permissions (ie you may need to sudo) * Connect USB device to computer * Linux: use lsusb to determine which device bus is on. Try to choose a bus (port) with no other devices * Linux: start catpure on bus from above * Linux: attach USB device to Windows guest * Windows: start your application, do your thing, etc to generate packets * Linux: stop capture * Linux: save capture. Save in pcap-ng format (either should work) * Linux: run: “usbrply –device-hi -p my.pcapng >replay.py” * Linux: detatch USB device from Windows guest * Linux: run “python replay.py” * Verify expected device behavior. Did an LED blink? Did you get expected data back?
You may need to filter out USB devices. There are two ways to do this: * –device-hi: use the last device enumerated. This works well in most cases, including FX2 renumeration * –device DEVICE: manually specify the USB device used. Get this from lsusb output or Wireshark view
Other useful switches: * –rel-pkt: intended to easier allow diffing two outputs. Ex: what changed in trace for LED on vs LED off? * –no-packet-numbers: alternative to above * –fx2: decode common FX2 commands (ex: CPU reset) * –range RANGE: only decode a specific packet range. Use along with Wireshark GUI or refine a previous decode * see –help for more
# JSON output
use -j switch to output a parsing intermediate representation that should resemble original USB requests along with associated metadata. This can be used in more advanced applications, such as if you need to decode a complicated protocol or convert USB output to higher level API calls. An example can be found here: https://github.com/ProgHQ/bpmicro/blob/master/scrape.py This example first aggregates USB packets into application specific packets, and then decodes these into API calls
