Wireshark is the world's foremost & most widely-used network protocol analyzer, which helps you monitor activities on your network at a microscopic level. It is also used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software, and communications protocol development.
With this hands-on practical course, you'll start with basics of wireshark to analyze data and solve problems which primarily focus on enhancing your network analysis and web traffic capture skills to build a strong secure foundation. Then you will be trained on Wireshark and TCP/IP communications analysis to identify the most common causes of performance problems in TCP/IP communications. Moving further, you'll be introduce to a command line-version of Wireshark which is tshark. Next, you will also learn about various types of network cyber attack and essential remedies & troubleshooting your network using Wireshark.
Contents and Overview
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Analyzing Network Traffic with Wireshark 2.6 will give you real-world knowledge about all Wireshark topics followed by a step-by-step implementation guideline while showing you how to work on it practically . This course begins by installing Wireshark and familiarizing you with the GUI interface, then guides you through some important concepts to set up your own home/office lab, which will enable you to efficiently analyze data and solve problems. Throughout the course, we primarily focus on enhancing your network analysis and web traffic capture skills to build a strong secure foundation. By the end of the course, you will not only be comfortable working with Wireshark but also confident enough to implement in your day-to-day work life.
The second course, Wireshark Recipes will teach you to use Wireshark to identify the most common causes of performance problems in TCP/IP communications. You will develop a thorough understanding of how to use Wireshark efficiently to spot the primary sources of network performance problems, and you will prepare for the latest Wireshark certification exam.
The third course, Mastering Wireshark 2.6 starts setting up a Wireshark lab in the Windows and Linux operating systems. We dive into the overall process of packet capturing and Wireshark filters. Then, we introduce tshark, a command line-version of Wireshark, and we learn about various tshark commands. Later, we are introduced to various types of network cyber attack and essential remedies. We also go through an array of techniques to monitor and secure these attacks using Wireshark. Lastly, we cover network troubleshooting using Wireshark.Towards the end of the course, you'll use Wireshark efficiently to find primary sources of network performance problems and also different ways to secure networks.
