As part of GSoc 2011, Jakub Zawadzki developed a variety of wirkeshark extensions:
- WireShnork plugin that would support applying Snort IDS rules and signatures against pcap files. This would be useful for network forensic, allowing analysts to automatically colorise packets that match a particular Snort IDS signature.
- WireshAV plugin that would allow to scan captured files with antiviruses
- WireBrowse plugin which would allow to access some of wireshark functionality over web browser
- WireViz GUI plugin which would allow to generate connection graphs with Graphviz
