This is a fundamental course that provides you with the knowledge that you need to use Wireshark 2.0 to capture packets on any network interface, and to display, navigate, and analyze this packet capture.
Capturing and analyzing network traffic data can be time-consuming and complex, but with this course, it doesn't have to be. In this course, Wireshark 2.0: Fundamentals, you'll learn how to capture and analyze the traffic that goes over your office and public networks through the data center. First, you'll learn how to install and use one of the world's most popular network package capture tools. Next, you'll discover the key features of Wireshark that will enable you to analyze your packet capture. Finally, you'll learn best practices when analyzing network traffic with Wireshark. By the end of the course, you'll be able to use Wireshark to easily capture and analyze network traffic.
Hi everyone, my name is Dr Avril Salter and welcome to my course Wireshark 2.0 Fundamentals.I am an independent consultant and I have been working on network protocols since I joined IBM back in the mainframe days before the days of TCP/IP when we had to write macro-assembler code to get two machines to talk to each other.We live in an ever increasing connected world. At work where we use computer to perform job functions, in our home where our smart phones turn on the lights and check our security system, next generation smart cars will talk to each other to avoid collisions, and ever our body are reporting how many steps we walked and our sleeping patterns.In this course, we are going to learn how to capture and analyze the traffic that goes over your office, data center, home and even public networks.Some of the major topics that we will cover include: 1. How to install and use one of the world’s most popular network packet capturing tools, Wireshark. 2. How to use the key features of Wireshark that will enable you to analyze your packet captures. These features include display filters, coloring rules, and profiles. 3. You will also learn Best Practices when analyzing network traffic with Wireshark. By the end of this course, you’ll know how to use Wireshark to capture and analyze network traffic. Course is full of demonstrations that you will be able to follow along with while capturing and analyzing your own network traffic.Before beginning the course you should be familiar with basic network concepts such as the OSI model, and terms such as protocols, bits and bytes.I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn how to capture and explore network traffic with the Wireshark 2.0 Fundamentals course, at Pluralsight.
