Network Analysis Using Zeek Logs
In this lab, you'll practice how to conduct basic analysis using Zeek. When you’re finished, you'll have the ability to analyze output from Zeek to identify interesting traffic.
Terms and conditions apply.
Getting Started in the Lab Environment
Here are the initial instructions and explanation of the lab environment. Read this while your environment is busy creating itself from nothing. Yes, this violates physics; we know. How fun!
Analyze Network Traffic with Zeek
Learn about Zeek's analysis of network traffic, how to read and interpret the output of the analysis from a PCAP file, and how to identify ways to use that information.
Find Anomalies with Zeek-cut and CLI Analysis
Learn about Zeek's analysis of network traffic using command-line tools, and how to use those tools to facilitate efficient investigations.
Analyze Files with the File Analysis Framework
Learn about Zeek's analysis of files from PCAPs, and how to extract them to conduct further analysis.
Detect Threats with Zeek’s Intel Framework
Learn about Zeek's analysis of intelligence files, and how to integrate them with the notice framework for alerting on interesting traffic.
The Last Challenge
Welcome to the final challenge! This is your last chance to experiment in the environment. Clicking Finish Lab will end this little world that flittered into existence just for you.
Provided environment for hands-on practice
We will provide the credentials and environment necessary for you to practice right within your browser.
Follow along with the author’s guided walkthrough and build something new in your provided environment!
