Wireshark for Security Professionals 2016

Here’s a summary of thebook’scontents:


Chapter 1
                   “Introducing wire-shark,” is best for the professional with little to no experience-with Wire-shark. Thematic goal is to help you avoid being overwhelmed, introduce the interface, and show how Wire-shark can be your friend.

Chapter 2
                      “Setting Up the Lab,” is not to be skipped. Starting-with setting up a visualized machine, this chapter then sets up the W4SP Lab,which you-will use several times in upcoming chapters.

Chapter 3
                  “The Fundamentals,” covers basic concepts and is divided into three parts: networking, information security, and packet analysis. The book assumes most readers might be familiar with at least one or two areas, but the chapter makes no assumptions.

Chapter 4
                    “Capturing Packets,” discusses network captures, or the recording of network packets. We take a deep dive into how Wireshark captures, manipulates capture files, and interprets the packets. There’s also a discussion around working with the variety of devices you encounter on a network.

Chapter 5
                    “Diagnosing Attacks,” makes good use of the W4SP Lab,re-creating various attacks commonly seen in the real world. Man in the middle attacks, spoofing various services, denial of service attacks and more are all discussed.

Chapter 6
                       “Offensive Wireshark,” also covers malicoustraffic, but from the hacker’s perspective. Wireshark and the W4SP Lab are again relied on to launch, debug, and understand exploits.

Chapter 7
                       “Encrypting TLS, Capturing USB, Keyloggers, and Network Graphing,” is a mash-up of more activities as we lever age Wireshark. From decryption SSL/TLS traffic to capturing USB traffic across multiple platforms, this chapter promises to demonstrate something you can use wherever you work or play.

Chapter 8
                      “Scripting with Lua,” contains about 95% of the book’s script content. It starts simple with scripting concepts and Lua setup,whether you’reworking on Windows or Linux. Scripts start with “Hello, World” but lead to packet counting and far more complex topics. Your scripts will both enhance the Wireshark graphic inter face and run from the command line.
