Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Chris B Behrens, and welcome to my course, Using Intermediate Wireshark Features. Wireshark is the white hat version of what we fear on the internet, a packet sniffer, a traffic interceptor. But, of course, we can use it as a force for good and for clarity to learn what's happening on our network. Some of the major topics that we will cover include troubleshooting HTTP traffic and troubleshooting TDS traffic, the protocol that SQL Server uses, performing forensic analysis on unknown traffic, and automating packet capture in a build. By the end of this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of how to leverage Wireshark beyond the introductory level and get a clear picture of what's happening with your traffic. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with Wireshark and networking in general. From here, you should feel comfortable diving into advanced Wireshark topics like in‑depth analysis, custom protocol dissectors, and the advanced statistics tools in Wireshark. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn how to put a magnifying glass on your traffic with the Using Intermediate Wireshark Features course, at Pluralsight.
