About

Hi, my name is Are Chr. Taraldsen. I used to work as a security engineer and programmer until I got a permanent, chronically disease (same as Stephen Hawking). To continue to do what I love, coding, I decided to make Nethor despite my disability. The application is written in C# and I am using eye-gazing technology for navigation and typing. It’s amazing that one can make software using eyes only. It’s not as effective as using mouse and keyboard, but most of the time spent programming is based on thinking and studying. So my disease is not a huge setback as one might think.

This software is currently a beta release. This means that I haven’t implemented all of the features I think are required for a full release. There are undoubtedly bugs I haven’t found yet just waiting to surface given the right conditions. If you run across one of these, I would really appreciate a mail with precise details on how it can be reliably reproduced. Include Error.txt residing in program directory if an exception was thrown.

Protocol dissectors I’ve written so far are more or less complete, mainly because I have not enough packet captures to verify code against. If you want to share with me packets, you are more than welcome. Then I will upgrade the dissectors as soon as possible.

Currently I haven’t written a user guide. You must figure yourself on how to operate Nethor. Sorry for the inconvenience but I believe you will figure it out.

Nethor uses GeoIP data from MaxMind. A copy of free GeoLite2 City database is included with Nethor but it’s not recent. To obtain recent copies, you must sign up at MaxMind here. Make sure to download a binary version of the city database and copy it to Nethor’s program directory.
