- Version 3 of p0f is a full rewrite
- The idea for p0f dates back to June 10, 2000
- Tool can run in foreground or as a daemon process

Common uses for p0f include reconnaissance during penetration tests; routine network monitoring; detection of unauthorized network interconnects in corporate environments; providing signals for abuse-prevention tools; and miscellaneous forensics.
