Analyze your organization’s traffic with ease by using one of the most popular and powerful network analyzer.
Yes, we do agree network analysis might seem very daunting. But thanks to Wireshark 2, it’s no longer a challenge. The improved GUI, the color coding, the human-readable output are only a few of the many features that make Wireshark a popular choice among its contenders.
This Learning Path will introduce you to the basic features of Wireshark 2 and teach you how to leverage these features in the optimal way to organize network traffic.
Yes, this is not a course, it’s a Learning Path.Packt’s Video Learning Paths are an amalgamation of multiple video courses that are logically tied together to provide you with a larger learning curve.
This Learning Path will brush through the basic networking concepts, and then introduce you to the user interface of Wireshark. Later it moves on to the different ways to create and use the capture and display filters in Wireshark. Also, you’ll be mastering its features, analyzing different layers of the network protocol, and looking for any anomalies.
By the end of this Learning Path, you will be able to use Wireshark for network security analysis and configure it for troubleshooting purposes.
