Network and Packet Analysis Training:

Network and Packet Analysis Training course with hands-on labs

This Network and Packet Analysis Training course teaches the student the fundamental concepts, methodologies, and tools necessary to analyze network traffic for the purposes of intrusion and threat detection, network defense, and low profile offensive operations.

The hands-on Network and Packet Analysis course begins with discussing the role of network packet analysis in computer network operations (CNO). After a detailed discussion of the TCP/IP protocol suite and ethernet network operations, the student practices using the command line tool tcpdump and the protocol analyzer tshark to capture and analyze self-generated network traffic. Students then are asked to examine actual packet captures which illustrate various exploits, network reconnaissance techniques, and more advanced network attacks.

Network and Packet Analysis Training cover the following topics:

  • Network and Packet Analysis: TCP/IP Review
  • Network and Packet Analysis: The Protocols
  • Network and Packet Analysis: Basic TCPDUMP
  • Network and Packet Analysis: Advanced TCPDUMP
  • Network and Packet Analysis: Wireshark
  • And more…

The Network and Packet Analysis Training course concludes with an extensive real world exercise in which the student must utilize all of the concepts and tools learned in class to analyze and fully characterize the various network threats and breaches.
