    Name        : libpcap
    Product     : Fedora 30
    Version     : 1.9.1
    Release     : 1.fc30
    URL         : http://www.tcpdump.org
    Summary     : A system-independent interface for user-level packet capture
    Description :
    Libpcap provides a portable framework for low-level network
    monitoring.  Libpcap can provide network statistics collection,
    security monitoring and network debugging.  Since almost every system
    vendor provides a different interface for packet capture, the libpcap
    authors created this system-independent API to ease in porting and to
    alleviate the need for several system-dependent packet capture modules
    in each application.
    
    Install libpcap if you need to do low-level network traffic monitoring
    on your network.
