I would like to share some practical experience of using the various approaches.
An NDIS filter can observe and capture all of the activity at the data link layer which can be divided into the logical link control LLC and medium access control MAC sublayers — making it network layer protocol independent; it is the only technique that I shall mention which has this capability.
There are at least two problems with the NDIS filter approach: A limited filtering capability is also exposed via this ETW provider. At the time of writing, the current version of WfpCapture does not pass the Driver Signing Policy enforced by Nebbtt 10, version and later.
Unless one or more of the exception conditions apply i. This is the most recent message from Microsoft that I could find on this topic: Yes, we were able to repro with SecureBoot enabled. We are looking at this now and post a new build when we have this fixed. But I don’t have a time frame.
Peter Viscarola founder of OSR later wrote, in response to a discussion of this topic: I hate to say this, but since you asked: The registry key information is only available under NDA.

Windows 10 raw sockets can receive all IPv4 packets both inbound and outbound including their IPv4 headers and all IPv6 packets — but only from the transport layer upwards i. The receipt of inbound packets is subject to the Windows Defender Firewall rules in force — it is normally necessary to add a rule to grant access. There are however a number of drawbacks compared to the first two techniques: If captured data is loaded into Message Analyzer for analysis, the out-of-order time-stamping causes many spurious diagnosis messages.
This data segment was acknowledged before it arrived, which infers an out-of-order capturing issue. Retransmitted, original message is missing.
The biggest problem with raw socket network sniffing is the handling of IPv6 packets. Gar documentation accurately states: The application does not receive any IPv6 headers using a raw socket.
The basic IPv6 header RFCand therefore the missing information in the received data, looks like this: The Version field can be inferred since one needs to create separate raw sockets per network interface for IPv4 and IPv6 packets.
The Payload Length is implicit gxry the length of the captured data. The most important missing information is the final Next Header value since this determines the transport protocol and how the captured data should be interpreted. The UDP nebbegt is the only header that contains a field Length that can be directly compared with information that we know about the received packet. All three types of headers include a Checksum field, albeit at different offsets.

The heuristic that I use to infer the Next Header value is: These packets are then easy to spot in trace analysis tools such as Message Analyzer and Wireshark. If a checksum is good, repeating the checksum process including the checksum value itself in the checksum should deliver a result of 0 or 0xFFFF. In addition to the transport data, the checksum also covers an IPv6 pseudo-header: The approach that I take to this is to create an initial set of possible addresses by examining various networking tables: Now try to verify the checksum using each of these addresses.
False matches of Next Header and Destination Address against the Checksum are possible, but I have been happy with the results.
