The new Skunk is here!
Your favorite switch just got even better The Skunk gets a new version for 2022! Still providing the same features you know and love, the software remains the same but the hardware has had some visible changes. Probably the most obvious is the move from the classic green soldermask to a fresh purple. Some changes are not just cosmetic though: the physical footprint has been reduced quite a bit. From 84x75 mm down to 75x61 mm, the Skunk just got a 27% size reduction. It now takes even less space in your hacker backpack or toolbox. This becomes pretty obvious when...

Alternative case designs for the Skunk
Are you growing tired of the "classic" look of the Skunk's basic enclosure? Do you wish there was a funkier alternative? I wanted to experiment with other designs for this case. After some playing around, I came up with two alternatives which, at least to me, provide some nice change of outfit for the Skunk. Please note: only the standard green case is shipped with the Skunk for now. The cases presented here are simply experiments that I encourage anyone with a 3D printer to try out for themselves. The bottom part of the case has not actually changed -...

After reading many of your messages about the Skunk and its features, I was able to get a better understanding of what most users needed. I took some time the past few days to work on implementing the features that seemed to warrant the highest attention. So here it is (finally): version 1.2.0 of the Skunk firmware. In in this article I will try to present the changes brought along by this new update. A better command-line interface One of the key advantages of the Skunk is the simplicity with which it can be configured, simply by plugging in a...
Meet the Skunk - next level network intrusion and sniffing
The Skunk is a Gigabit Ethernet tap and switch. Use it as a basic switch whenever you need one, or use it to sniff packets at gigabit speeds. Or write a custom firmware to do something else entirely. That's right - the Skunk firmware is open-source, simple and built with the Dooba SDK. In fact, go check it out if you are interested: https://bitbucket.org/dooba_core/skunk. When it's time to sniff some packets, the Skunk is ready to go in a single command via USB - no fumbling with complex web interfaces and IP address configuration madness. Plug in the cables, enable sniffing and start...
