Network Protocols for Security: IPv4 and ARP
In this lab, you'll practice creating network traffic and inspecting Link and Internet layer protocols. When you're finished, you'll have a fundamental understanding on how to find anomalies within IPv4 and ARP.
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!
In this challenge you will be analyzing media access control (MAC) addresses and learning how they can be spoofed within a network.
Address Resolution Protocol (ARP)
This challenge will have you exploring the Address Resolution Protocol (ARP), analyzing ARP broadcasts, and taking a look at an ARP storm.
Exploring IPv4 in Malicious Traffic
With IPv4, you will detect anomalies by inspecting the Time to Live (TTL) field within the IP header. This challenge makes use of a Man in the Middle (MiTM) attack.
The Final Challenge
The last challenge of this lab and your last chance to experience the environment before clicking Next and ending this small little world that flittered into existence just for you.
