Pre-conference class I

Throughout this course, we are going to look at real-world examples of how to practically use Wireshark to solve network problems and isolate cybersecurity incidents. This skill will help AllOps (NetOps, SecOps, DevOps) engineers to improve in their analysis and troubleshooting skills. Labs have been designed to give real-world, hands-on experience with protocols using Wireshark.

Core Wireshark Skills for Network Engineers and Security Pros
DatesJune 15-16
InstructorChris Greer and Ross Bagurdes
Who should attend?Wireshark can be intimidating. I remember how it felt when I first started looking at a trace file with Wireshark. Questions started flooding into my mind: What should I look for? Where do I start? How can I find the packets that matter? What filters should I use? What is 'normal' and what can I ignore in all this data? I froze under the weight of all the detail in the packets. If you have ever felt that way when looking at a pcap, this is the course for you!

Pre-conference class II

The filtering capabilities in Wireshark are very flexible and powerful and have been significantly enhanced with the release of Wireshark 4.0. In this masterclass, your filtering skills will be taken to the next level. We will start with the basic operators and work our way through the more advanced filtering techniques like how to use display filter macros, dynamic filters (in combination with filter buttons), filtering arithmetics, regular expressions, etc. There will also be a comparison with using (advanced) BPF filters for filtering while capturing or post-processing pcap files.
