Anonymization Application Programming Interface (AAPI)
In this page you can find AnonTool, an open-source implementation of Anonymization API. You can download the distribution (version 1.5) from here. This release is stable enough and has been tested in Debian systems. The distribution comes with a set of ready-to-use applications for anonymization of Netflow (v5 and v9) traces (recorded in tcpdump format) as well as a general tool for anonymizing any tcpdump trace.
AnonTool now supports anonymization policies defined in an XML derivative syntax from files. See the docs/README for more information. An example is included.
