Network Signature Development Understood.
Cyber threats are increasing at an alarming rate every year and the ability for organizations to defend against full-scale, distributed attacks quickly and effectively has become much more difficult. An Intrusion Detection system affords security administrators the ability to automate the process of identifying attacks amongst the thousands of TCP and UDP conversations on their network, provided the IDS signatures are well-written.
Taught by leaders in network defense who work in the computer security industry, this course demonstrates how to defend large scale network infrastructure by building and maintaining intrusion detection systems and mastering advanced signature writing techniques. With Intrusion Detection Systems and trained network security auditors, organizations have a reliable means to prioritize and isolate the most critical threats in real time.
Day 5 – Student Practical Demonstration
Students are given several packet captures containing a variety of scanning and exploitation techniques. They are tasked with identifying the significant elements of the attack and translating them into IDS signatures. Finally, they are tasked with tuning those signatures to reduce false positives and limit excessive events
