Network Traffic Analysis will teach you to differentiate between normal and abnormal network traffic, track the flow of packets through a network, and attribute conversations and actions taken over a network segment to specific hosts or users. This course focuses on research, filtering, and comparative analysis to identify and attribute the different types of activity on a network. You will learn how to follow conversations across a wide range of protocols and through redirection, as well as how to develop custom filters for non-dissected protocols. On Day 5 of the course, you will participate in a team-based capture-the-flag exercise to test your new skills.
This class is taught as 70% hands-on and 30% classroom instruction, and culminates in a capstone team-based CTF challenge.
