Course Description

In this Challenge Lab, you will manage a Wireshark capture so that the data flow may be recreated and examined. First, you will install Wireshark, and then you will perform a network traffic capture. Next, you will examine the capture by following a TCP stream, and then you will follow an HTTP stream. Finally, you will examine data flow of captured traffic by using various Wireshark statistics tools, including Protocol Hierarchy, Packet Lengths, I/O Graphs, DNS statistics, and Flow Graph. Note: Once you begin the Challenge Lab, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your Challenge Lab. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the Challenge Lab before you start.
