Intro to Packet Analysis and Network Sniffing

A lot of information passes through the wires of computer networks each and every day.  What sensitive information can hackers gain about a system by just listening?  Learn how to use packet capture programs to gain intelligence about your targets.  Learn how to use analysis tools to detect network anomalies and gain a better understanding of how adversaries gain access.  The hands on labs will go over several packet capture utilities and the basics of how to use them.

    Brought back some good memories from days of protocol analysis! Organization/Prep was great. It would be great if we could launch those VMs from our laptops.
