This course will teach students how to identify and analyze the most common types of reconnaissance, attack, lateral movement, exfiltration, and command-and-control traffic found in today’s networks. It covers a range of techniques from deep-packet analysis to statistical-flow analysis to opensource research and more. This course uses tools such as Wireshark, Network Miner, and RSA NetWitness Investigator as well as custom tools and scripts developed by our networking experts.
- Identify and analyze attacks across the various layers of the network stack
- Identify signs of reconnaissance being conducted against a network and recommend mitigation steps to limit the data provided to attackers
- Perform flow analysis to uncover anomalous and malicious activity at a statistical level
- Detect and investigate tunneling, botnet command-and-control traffic, and other forms of covert communications being utilized in a network
- Accurately correlate multiple stages of malicious activity in order to build a complete picture of the scope and impact of a coordinated network intrusion
