Presenter: Chris GreerIntroduction to Wireshark

Presenter:

  • Chris Greer – Packet Analyst and Founder, Packet Pioneer

Overview:

Get started using the popular protocol analyzer to capture packets on your network and troubleshoot user issues. Packet Pioneer Chris Greer shows you how to get up and running fast.

Learn To:

  • Determine how and where to capture
  • Configure profiles, custom columns, and coloring rules
  • Set up display filters and profiles for analysis
  • Analyze network traffic for troubleshooting

Presenter: Chris GreerHow to Fix “Slow”

Presenter:

  • Chris Greer – Packet Analyst and Founder, Packet Pioneer

Overview:

Users often complain of slow networks, applications, and web connections. But is the network, application, or client the cause? Chris Greer will demonstrate how to locate and solve problems in the packets.

Learn to:

  • Understand the TCP handshake
  • Identify duplicate ACKs and retransmissions
  • Assess trace files for hidden TCP clues

Presenter: Paul OffordTroubleshooting Performance in the Cloud

Presenter:

Overview:

While the decision of moving to the cloud often occurs outside the network, supporting end-user issues often falls to the network team. When applications move to the cloud, it leaves engineers in the dark lacking visibility and insight to diagnose and resolve user issues. Paul Offord, CTO and troubleshooting expert, will share strategies for using Wireshark in cloud situations to regain control of performance.

Learn to:

  • Establish visibility for SaaS, IaaS (AWS and Microsoft Azure)
  • Investigate performance issues and delay in the cloud with real-world use case
  • Isolate issue between cloud and internal network
  • Validate user experience issues in the cloud

Presenter: Ross BagurdesMonitoring and Assessing Encrypted Traffic

Presenter:

  • Ross Bagurdes –  Network Engineer and Technical Author, Bagurdes Technology

Overview:

SSL/TLS is used every day, in nearly every conversation, with nearly every networked device. Learn how SSL/TLS works to encrypt traffic in this easy to understand breakdown of the protocol. Ross Bagurdes, network engineer and educator, will use Wireshark to illustrate details of SSL/TLS operation, observing each step of the handshake and how it leads to bulk encryption of data.

Learn to:

  • Recognize SSL/TLS encryption protocol and function basics
  • Use Wireshark to view the TLS handshake in operation
  • Understand public/private key encryption protocols and operations
  • Capture session keys and decrypt TLS sessions in Wireshark

Presenter: Chris GreerTroubleshooting High-Speed Networks

Presenter:

  • Chris Greer – Packet Analyst and Founder, Packet Pioneer

Overview:

When troubleshooting sporadic issues in high-speed environments, it can be difficult to successfully capture and resolve the problem. Chris Greer, professional packet analyst, presents a dual-pronged strategy to improve visibility and troubleshooting by understanding the best circumstances to use software and hardware capture and monitoring.

Learn to:

  • Identify the capture and analysis limits of a laptop
  • Understand how big packet haystacks can get on large networks
  • Efficiently filter through large packet haystacks to find root cause
  • Utilize powerful complementary metrics and analysis to streamline troubleshooting

Enjoy the freshest troubleshooting strategies and jaw-dropping hacks, especially for Wireshark users. Attend all five sessions and we’ll provide you with a certificate to showcase your learning.
