Electronic Frontier Foundation releases net neutrality software package

In light of reports that Comcast and other Internet service providers are tinkering with traffic on their networks, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has released software that lets users test whether their own ISP is tinkering with data and violating every principle of network neutrality.

From the EFF’s web site:

Developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Switzerland is an open source software tool for testing the integrity of data communications over networks, ISPs and firewalls. It will spot IP packets which are forged or modified between clients, inform you, and give you copies of the modified packets.

It’s only available as a command-line tool at this point. I assume that means it’s for *nix.
