So, for a research project, I'm trying to use the HONE project on github, which creates during its module installation two pseudo-devices in the /dev folder. These are called hone and honet, the former containing the information it is programmed to receive in pcapng format, and the latter a human-readable text interpretation.
As it stands, I can't find a way to reliably and continuously get information from the hone device. I could use
cat, but it runs the risk of cutting off writing mid-packet. HONE also comes with a program for logging the information to a file, called
honelogd, but still, I need to run my software continuously.
Is it possible to configure Wireshark to accept this pseudo-device as a capture interface?
