How to install ss networking tool?

I'm trying to install ss on Fedora 29. I installed the iproute package, but it did not contain the ss utility.

On other distros ss is part of iproute, so I'm wondering how I'm supposed to install it. I also noticed that Fedora 29 doesn't come pre-installed with basic networking tools, both net-tools and iproute need to be manually installed.

I'd appreciate if anyone could tell me what package contains ss, since running yum search ss yields way too many results...

Thanks

ss is a program that is installed by default on the F29 Server. It seems to be included in the minimal installation.

 [root@cugar ~]# whereis ss
 ss: /usr/sbin/ss /usr/share/man/man8/ss.8.gz

@villykruse comment and attach the rpm status.

 [root@cugar ~]# rpm -qa|grep iproute
 iproute-tc-4.18.0-3.fc29.x86_64
 iproute-4.18.0-3.fc29.x86_64

And exactly by this package:

[root@mybox ~]# rpm -qf /usr/sbin/ss
iproute-4.18.0-3.fc29.x86_64
[root@mybox ~]#
