Netcope Session Filter
A session-oriented packet capture solution that leverages FPGA Boards to accelerate per-packet processing and flow-based stateful filtering. This leaves more CPU performance for complex processing of network traffic. Stateful filtering-based packet manipulation perceives network traffic as a set of network flows and it is able to track network flows directly in hardware. Autonomous in-hardware processing tracks the flows and gathers statistical information about the flow such as communicating endpoints (IP addresses, TCP/UDP ports, L4 protocol), timestamps of beginning and end of the communication and number of transferred bytes and packets.
