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
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.
