One thing I have never actually got around to doing is learning how to properly read a network trace, it is something that I’ve wanted to do, just never got around to doing. Now is the time, so having done some research and remembering advice from colleagues, I will be learning network trace analysis using Laura Chappell’s book Wireshark 101 2nd Edition, which came out on 14th March 2017 and can be bought on Amazon as an ebook or printed copy. This book is designed for beginners, but you do need some knowledge of the various protocols TCP/IP etc. Along with the book, you can download the sample files used in the examples/labs. Flicking through the book it does look very comprehensive.
To go with this, I also ‘discovered’ a list of 100 Wireshark tips which Laura Chappel had originally tweeted about in 2013.
Lets see how I get on!
