Welcome guys my name is Anwer Khan and I will be your instructor throughout this course. In this course we will talk straight to the point. Therefore, we will cover more in less time.
First, Did you know that being able to understand what’s on the network is considered a superpower? It’s true. Packet analysis helps you to understand the traffic on your network, So you can identify latency issues and actively monitor the network for attacks.
Wireshark is a free and open-source packet analyzer. It is used for network troubleshooting, analysis, software and communications protocol development, and education.
Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer, or an application that captures packets from a network connection, such as from your computer to your home office or the internet. Packet is the name given to a discrete unit of data in a typical Ethernet network. Wireshark is the most often-used packet sniffer in the world.
In this course, I’ll provide an overview and benefits of traffic capture. I’ll cover how to download and install on a PC. Then we’ll explore the Wireshark interface. I’ll cover how to tap into the data stream and use display and capture filters. I’ll review the OSI model and encapsulation.
Then we’ll do a deep packet analysis of common protocols, such as TCP, IP and DNS. I’ll finish with working with the expert system and how to troubleshoot network latency issues.
When you’re finished with this course, you’ll be able to immediately put Wireshark to use in your own work.
I invite you to join me on this Wireshark journey.
