Course Description Whether you are a network engineer, developer, or have a focus in cybersecurity, Wireshark should be one of the most important tools in your arsenal. In today’s complex network landscape, everyone from Ethical Hackers to help desk should learn how to comfortably dig through trace files and isolate problems at the packet level.

In this course we will use a TON of hands-on exercises to learn tips, tricks and best practices with Wireshark. You will gain comfort with digging through packet traces, whether your goal is analyzing a network problem, speeding up a slow application, or investigating a security breach.

The concepts in this course will prepare beginners to get the most out of the Sharkfest sessions that will follow during the conference, as well as refresh and sharpen the shredding skills of seasoned analysts.

Class Title Filtering and analyzing packets with Wireshark: A scenario based approach
Description Time is money when troubleshooting and optimizing network performance issues. Practical network analysis encompasses capturing data and discerning the critical patterns hidden within network traffic streams to identify the problem. Additional complexity due to the increasing adoption of the Nest Generation Protocol stacks, including the IPV6-based family, threatens to make this job even more challenging. This course provides the student with an introduction to investigating and analysis techniques focusing on the use of vendor-neutral, Open-Source Tools such as Wireshark.
Recommended Prerequesites This course is at an intermediate level, and given the fast pace, students should, at a minimum, be proficient with creating Wireshark profiles, columns, color rules, capture and display filtering, and the basics of the IPV4-based TCP/IP protocol stack.

Who Should Attend This course is for Networking, Engineering, and Security personnel who want to advance their packet investigation techniques by studying the Next Generation Networking Protocols using Wireshark. Successful completion of this course will provide these individuals with a path-way into the field of both Network and Forensics Analysis.

Description You've just been brought into the bridge call. They want you to "do a capture" and see if you can analyze the issue. You grabbed a million packets. Now you have two goals:

1.) Find the 6 packets that actually matter given the situation.
2.) Interpret what those 6 mean.

Knowing the right filters will achieve goal one. Laser focusing on the remaining packets helps with goal 2. We'll use the most common troubleshooting and security scenarios to teach core Wireshark techniques. Be ready with the latest version of Wireshark installed so you can hone your filtering and analyzing skills.
Outline Scenarios:

Latency (It's not the network)
Latency (Darn! It is the network)
Broken App
Sudden|Unexpected disconnects
Ransomware
Threat Hunting

Wireshark Skills:

Examine Capture and Display filter syntax
Save both Capture and Display filters
Determine the most efficient filter methods, especially when working with large data sets
Classify which protocols and fields would be applicable to each scenario
Investigate how a host responds to a negative answer
Review application flows for deviations from expected steps
Validate versions and settings negotiations for common protocols
Translate Suricata Rules and Zeek Signatures into Wireshark filters
Who Should Attend This course is at an intermediate level. It will move quickly between scenarios, so attendees should be comfortable with the following tasks: setting up Wireshark, capturing, adding columns, changing color rules and the basics of TCP/IP. After this course, you will become more efficient and confident analyzing pcaps with Wireshark. Network engineers, network analysts, application developers, cybersecurity analysts and security engineers would get the most benefit from this course.
