Network Forensics Training at TROOPERS 2017

Troopers logo with Network Forensics Training

I will come back to the awesome TROOPERS conference in Germany this spring to teach my two-day network forensics class on March 20-21.

The training will touch upon topics relevant for law enforcement as well as incident response, such as investigating a defacement, finding backdoors and dealing with a machine infected with real malware. We will also be carving lots of files, emails and other artifacts from the PCAP dataset as well as perform Rinse-Repeat Intrusion Detection in order to detect covert malicious traffic.

Day 1 - March 20, 2017

The first training day will focus on open source tools that can be used for doing network forensics. We will be using the Security Onion linux distro for this part, since it contains pretty much all the open source tools you need in order to do network forensics.

Day 2 - March 21, 2017

We will spend the second day mainly using NetworkMiner Professional and CapLoader, i.e. the commercial tools from Netresec. Each student will be provided with a free 6 month license for the latest version of NetworkMiner Professional (see our recent release of version 2.1) and CapLaoder. This is a unique chance to learn all the great features of these tools directly from the guy who develops them (me!).

The Venue

The Troopers conference and training will be held at the Print Media Academy (PMA) in Heidelberg, Germany.

Keeping the class small

The number of seats in the training will be limited in order to provide a high-quality interactive training. However, keep in mind that this means that the we might run out of seats for the network forensics class!

I would like to recommend those who wanna take the training to also attend the Troopers conference on March 22-24. The conference will have some great talks, like these ones:

However, my greatest takeaway from last year's Troopers was the awesome hallway track, i.e. all the great conversations I had with all the smart people who came to Troopers.

Please note that the tickets to the Troopers conference are also limited, and they seem to sell out quite early each year. So if you are planning to attend the network forensics training, then I recommend that you buy an “All Inclusive” ticket, which includes a two-day training and a conference ticket.

You can read more about the network forensics training at the Troopers website.

UPDATE 2017-02-15

The network forensics training at Troopers is now sold out. However, there are still free seats available in our network forensics class at 44CON in London in September.

Network Forensics Training at TROOPERS

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 CapLoader. 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 SecurityOnion sensor. 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

Two-day Network Forensics Class in Stockholm

Network Forensics Training in Stockholm

We are running a two-day Network Forensics class in Stockholm on 15-16th of September.

SEC-T.org logo 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:
