New Wireshark Training Courses from Global Knowledge
Cary, N.C. - September 24, 2008 - Global Knowledge, the worldwide leader in IT and Business training, today announced the availability of two training courses on Wireshark, the widely deployed open-source network/protocol analysis tool. Global Knowledge is the exclusive third-party training provider in the U.S. for Wireshark University, the authorized Wireshark training and certification organization formed in cooperation with Gerald Combs, creator of Wireshark.
In these skills-building, authorized Wireshark University courses, students will learn to use Wireshark to analyze network traffic and troubleshoot and secure TCP/IP networks while preparing for the Wireshark Certification Exam. Both courses emphasize hands-on lab exercises and real-world case studies, allowing students to gain skills they can use immediately following class.
In Analyzing TCP/IP Networks with Wireshark, students will discover effective Wireshark operations and packet-level TCP/IP communications by examining network performance, focusing on normal and abnormal communication patterns of the TCP/IP suite and most common applications, including DHCP, DNS, FTP, Telnet, HTTP, POP, and SMTP. In the follow-on course, Troubleshooting and Securing TCP/IP Networks with Wireshark, students will further develop their Wireshark network traffic analysis skills, and they'll take the Wireshark Certification Exam on the last day of class.
Students will learn about:
- Configuring Wireshark for best performance, non-intrusive analysis, and effective network troubleshooting
- Placing the analyzer properly for traffic capture and analysis on a variety of network types
- Identifying and locating network performance problems and breaches
- Analyzing reconnaissance processes to identify possible targets
- Differentiating traffic from spoofed and non-spoofed host addresses
- Creating firewall Access Control List rules based on suspicious traffic
