TECH TRAINING 1 - Structured Network Threat Analysis and Forensics

Filed under: Main Page — Administrator @ 11:05 am

Title: Structured Network Threat Analysis and Forensics
Trainer: Meling Mudin (spoonfork) & Lee Chin Sheng (geek00l)
Capacity: 25 pax
Seats left: CLASS IS FULL

Cost: (per pax) MYR3299 (early bird) / MYR3899 (non early-bird)


The weary analyst battles the Internet: portscans are coming at you left and right, worms are spreading like wildfire, servers are compromised and confidential data are lost and stolen. This is a familiar scene, one that could be detected, prevented and and if it has already happened, contained.

This a hands-on class that will teach you on how to detect, analyze, and perform incident response and handling. We will throw at you tons of packet capture files, and we will show you how to analyze them using Open Source tools. When we say analyze, we mean: looking for signs of attacks, determining the source and attack destination, and detecting targetted vulnerabilities. We will also show you how to build, deploy and manage NSM (Network Security Monitoring) architecture.

At the end of the two-day session, you should be able to

* Perform structured network traffic and threat analysis
* Build, deploy, and manage NSM architecture
* Collect evidence and perform network and server forensic
* Use Open Source tools for SNT/TA effectively
* Build a defensible network using NSM
* Know WHAT to do when given packet capture files

Whom this training is for

* Security analysts
* System administrators
* Anyone who is interested in building defensible networks
* Anyone who is interested in building NSM architecture


* Intermediate to advanced knowledge of TCP/IP
* Knowledge of Unix and Windows system
* Participants must bring their own laptop
