Netify Developer

Welcome to the Netify Developer documentation. There are three distinct parts to the Netify solution:

  • The on-premise Netify DPI Agent that performs deep packet inspection and analysis on the local network
  • The cloud-based Netify Informatics API that provides enterprise network analysis via AI-based network intelligence
  • The Netify Data Feeds that provide network intelligence on applications, protocols, domains and IPs

You can find more developer information on each of these topics below.

Netify DPI Agent


The open source netifyd daemon performs the underlying deep packet inspection (DPI) and network analysis. The daemon provides all the heavy lifting that is not only used by Netify's cloud-based informatics engine, but also used for firewall/QoS integration and other third party solutions.

  • Detects over 190 protocols
  • Detects applications: Facebook, Netflix, etc.
  • Deconstructs DNS packets
  • Decodes SSL, DHCP and many others
  • Provides JSON hook for firewall/QoS
  • Works under a small footprint
  • and more..

The open source code is ready to use on various popular Linux distributions, FreeBSD, OpenWRT, Raspberry Pi and more.

Netify Informatics API


The Netify Intelligence Engine processes the network metadata by using a combination of machine learning and network analysis. The information is available through the Netify Informatics API, making it ideal for integrating into other business applications or custom platforms you may be using.

  • REST-based API with JSON payloads
  • Banwidth data in every shape and size
  • Device discovery
  • Network events via machine learning
  • Device tagging and naming
  • Historical forensic analysis
  • and more..

The Netify Informatics API is built around the REST web services concepts so you can get started quickly using standard off-the-shelf tools.

Netify Data Feeds


The Netify Data Feeds provide network intelligence for application, protocols, domains and IP addresses. The information is available through an API, making it ideal for integrating into other business analysis platforms, policy engines, cybersecurity solutions, and more.

  • REST-based API with JSON payloads
  • Application behavior data
  • IP data for routing policies
  • Domain and hostname analysis
  • Protocol and port statistics
  • Geolocation and CDN insights
  • and more..
