2016 Network Packet Analysis Workshop

Could not make it to the KY ISSA 2016 Network Packet Analysis Workshop? No problem!. We recorded the workshop and are making it available.

The workshop has been upgraded to a Teachable course and made available online at https://ellipsisinfosec.teachable.com/p/introduction-to-network-packet-analysis-and-forensics

This workshop is a guided introduction to using TCPDump, Wireshark and Network Miner to perform Network Packet Analysis. Those new to packet analysis will find this introduction welcoming and well-paced. Those with intermediate skills can enjoy tips on improving the process and exposure to multiple tools.

We review the basics of TCP, IP, UDP and other common networking protocols to familiarize the reader. Then we discuss several tools that are freely available, easy to use and provide excellent features. We provide an in-depth discussion of using Wireshark, Network Miner and TCPDump. For each tool, instruction is given followed by practical, real world examples using the tools.

The workshop concludes with 25 questions about 3 PCAP files included with the workshop. This exercise will check for understanding and reinforce the topics and tools.
