We have now scheduled two new live online classes,
one in September and one in October.
The September class is adapted to European time
and the October one is adapted to American time.
The contents are exactly the same in both classes.
The training is split into four interactive morning sessions (4 hours each),
so that you have the afternoon free to either practice what you learned in class or do your “normal” day job.
The number of attendees will be limited in order to enable attendees to ask questions
or even cover short ad-hoc side tracks.
We plan to accept something like 10 to 15 attendees per class.
The class registration will be closed once we reach this attendee limit.
🇪🇺 September 20-23, 2021. Live Online Training "PCAP in the Morning EU"
⏲️ Time: 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM CET (Central European Time)
💸 Price: € 820 EUR per student (€ 738 EUR if registering before August 20)
🇺🇸 October 25-28, 2021. Live Online Training "PCAP in the Morning US"
⏲️ Time: 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM EDT (US Eastern Daylight Time)
💸 Price: $1,000 USD per student ($900 USD if registering before September 25)
We will be analyzing a unique 30GB PCAP data set captured during June 2020
on an Internet connected network with multiple clients, an AD server, a web server,
an android tablet and some embedded devices.
As you’ve probably guessed, the capture files contain traffic
from multiple intrusions by various attackers, including APT style attackers and botnet operators.
The initial attack vectors are using techniques like exploitation of web vulnerabilities,
spear phishing, a supply chain attack and a man-on-the-side attack!
See our training page for more info about the “PCAP in the Morning” classes.
To sign up for a class, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the class dates,
your name and invoice address.
We will then send you a PayPal payment link that you can use to complete your training registration.
Hope to see you there!

I'm happy to announce that I will teach a two-day
Network Forensics class at the upcoming
Troopers conference in March!
The first day of training (March 14) will cover how to use open source tools to analyze intrusions and malware in captured network traffic.
On day two (March 15) I will show attendees some tips and tricks for how to use software developed by us at Netresec, i.e.
NetworkMiner Professional and
This training is a rare opportunity to learn how to use this software directly from the main developer (me).
Everyone taking the class will also get a free 6 month personal license for both NetworkMiner Pro and CapLoader.
Scenario and Dataset
The dataset analyzed in the class has been created using REAL physical machines and a REAL internet connection.
All traffic on the network is captured to PCAP files by a
The scenario includes events, such as:
- Web Defacement
- Man-on-the-Side (MOTS) attack (much like NSA/GCHQ's QUANTUM INSERT)
- Backdoor infection through trojanized software
- Spear phishing
- Use of a popular RAT (njRAT) for remote access and exfiltration
- Infection with real malware
Class attendees will learn to analyze captured network traffic from these events in order to:
- Investigate web server compromises and defacements
- Detect Man-on-the-Side attacks
- Identify covert backdoors
- Reassemble incoming emails and attachments
- Detect and decode RAT/backdoor traffic
- Detect malicious traffic without having to rely on blacklists, AV or third-party detection services
Training room at TROOPERS'15

The TROOPERS conference and training take place at the Print Media Academy in Heidelberg, Germany.

We are running a two-day Network Forensics class in Stockholm on 15-16th of September.
Our class is held the days before the SEC-T conference,
which is a great technical information security conference in Stockholm, and at the same venue (Nalen).
Visitors can thereby plan 4 days of training and conferencing in Stockholm without having to transfer between hotels.
The Network Forensics class consists of a mix of theory and hands-on labs, where students will learn to analyze Full Packet Capture (FPC) files.
The scenarios in the labs are primarily focused at network forensics for incident response,
but are also relevant for law enforcement/internal security etc. where the network traffic of a suspect or insider is being monitored.
You can find more information about the class here:
