Network Traffic Analysis

Training Summary
Grow Your Analytic Intelligence. Network Traffic Analysis will enable students to differentiate between normal and abnormal network traffic. The course focuses on research, filtering, and comparative analysis to identify different types of activity on a network and attribute their source. A subject matter expert will teach you security-related tactics, techniques, and procedures for performing network analysis in today's ever-changing threat landscape. You'll learn to follow conversations through redirection, as well as how to develop custom filters for non-dissected protocols. After completing this course, students will be able to hone in on the key events in a traffic capture and reconstruct the event time line. Using the tools, skills, and methodologies taught in Days 1 through 4 of the class, on Day 5, students will participate in a competitive capture-the-flag exercise. Designed to challenge the participants, each correctly completed milestone will unlock a successively more difficult challenge.
