Hynetd (Hybrid Network Topology Discovery) 

Hynetd (Hybrid Network Topology Discovery), a tool based on a hybrid methodology, effectively combines active and passive measurements to discover network topologies at router level. The main goal of Hynetd is to discover topologies at router level starting from the IP address spaces to explore and SNMP community names.
The adopted approach aims to:

  • guarantee a high level of completeness (i.e. discover the entire topology)

  • guarantee a high level of accuracy (i.e. make no mistakes)

  • improve the efficiency of the discovery process (i.e. reduce both the discovery duration and the traffic overhead).
