Thanks for the start. I can always modify it for larger strings and see what happens. As far as your analysis steps:
  1. According to the vendor, it's encrypted. No word on how strong they beleive it is. I performed actions that caused known data to be sent, so it should be fairly simple to tell how strong the encryption is. The problem here is that I have no clue how to go about it.
  2. The software is set up such that we can only use the two boxes it's installed on. I have run the same actions several different times, however, and there does appear to be similarities in the packet data.
  3. Did not think of that, but it sounds like an interesting test. Will investigate how to do it.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
