One of the easiest ways to get captures into CloudShark is through the Import from URL feature. This lets you just pass an https URL to CloudShark and have it import the file at that location. It’s even better when our integrators use it.
The folks over at WebPageTest, an open source and public tool for evaluating the speed and performance of your website, have CloudShark functionality built into their system.
Well, it’s official; the IETF has officially deprecated SSLv3.0. This means that it’s now a protocol violation to fall back to it. This is good news, since the number and types of attacks have been on the rise for awhile now. We’d like to take the opportunity to explore how to debug web applications that use HTTPS over SSL/TLS in CloudShark.
It’s undeniable that debugging HTTP traffic is one of the most common use-cases for a packet decoder.
Cisco Meraki 100% Cloud Managed Edge Networking devices allow you to perform remote packet capture from your Meraki management system. This feature includes the ability to upload directly to CloudShark, or to your own CloudShark Appliance!
If you are a Meraki user, learn how upgrading to the CloudShark Appliance will help you here.
The feature is actually very rich. You can perform capture on any Meraki Cloud Managed device, and even automatically filter by host.
We love it when good ideas come together.
Recently we were contacted by the smart people at Polidea, a company that delivers dynamic mobile app design, development, and testing to its clients. To assist in the latter, Polidea cooked up an open source Cellular Data Network Simulator that you can grab on GitHub.
We got a chance to talk to Kamil Trzciński from Polidea about the project and their CloudShark integration.
It’s no secret that CloudShark uses tshark to generate the data we use in the CloudShark database, resulting in what you see when you view a capture in the CloudShark viewer. CloudShark sorts and caches this information to make it faster and easier for you to get to the information you need, when you need it.
The added advantage of using tshark is that all of the most recent dissectors published in the latest versions of Wireshark can be used in CloudShark immediately without any additional work.

Do you use Meraki web managed networking devices? Do you need to troubleshoot networks that use them? Did you know they have an embedded capture mechanism?
The developers over at Kismet Wireless just released an packet capture app for Android devices that lets you use an external USB wireless adapter to capture layer 2 wireless LAN traffic and store in pcap format. How cool is that? The best part is, they’ve also built a handy CloudShark Uploader for Android as well!
When you have performed a capture using Android PCAP, you can then use the Android Cloudshark Uploader to directly upload your captures from your Android device to CloudShark.
Read this great article by ISSA Journal on Cloudshark/NST integration!
We are pleased to announce that Network Security Toolkit has integrated CloudShark upload capability into their 12.16.0-4104 release. NST is a very comprehensive suite of open source network security and analysis tools with a complete web interface, allowing you to perform a number of functions remotely by accessing the system on which NST is installed.
The addition of the CloudShark Upload Manager lets NST users perform multi-tap packet capture and instantly upload those captures to a CloudShark Appliance - centralizing your captures and letting you view and analyze them anywhere on any device.
HOMER SIP Capture Server, a robust, carrier grade, 100% open source scalable SIP Capture system and Monitoring Application, has become the first open source application to introduce native support for CloudShark! End users of the application now have the option to upload their captures to cloudshark.org, or to their own CloudShark appliance, where they can be viewed directly in a browser or shared with others via URL.
One of the great examples of how easily CloudShark can integrate with existing tools.
