[Palea -- concluded on 2011/06/28]

Palea is a tool to help discover if devices on your (secured and firewalled) network are also unknowingly connected to unknown other networks that would facilitate attacks and information leaks to the outside. Such an unknown network could for instance be a known device on your trusted network that also has a USB dongle in it connected to the open internet over GSM/2G/3G/xG.

By spoofing packets, Palea can be used to trick systems into exposing their connections to the internet. Palea can be run 24/7 on your network to also discover temporary connections.

The project was created by idefense (NL).
