Practical Packet Analysis: Using Wireshark to Solve Real-World Network Problems

It's easy enough to install Wireshark and begin capturing packets off the wire--or from the air. But how do you interpret those packets once you've captured them? And how can those packets help you to better understand what's going on under the hood of your network? Practical Packet Analysis shows how to use Wireshark to capture and then analyze packets as you take an indepth look at real-world packet analysis and network troubleshooting. The way the pros do it.

Wireshark (derived from the Ethereal project), has become the world's most popular network sniffing application. But while Wireshark comes with documentation, there's not a whole lot of information to show you how to use it in real-world scenarios. Practical Packet Analysis shows you how to:

  • Use packet analysis to tackle common network problems, such as loss of connectivity, slow networks, malware infections, and more
  • Build customized capture and display filters
  • Tap into live network communication
  • Graph traffic patterns to visualize the data flowing across your network
  • Use advanced Wireshark features to understand confusing packets
  • Build statistics and reports to help you better explain technical network information to non-technical users
Because net-centric computing requires a deep understanding of network communication at the packet level, Practical Packet Analysis is a must have for any network technician, administrator, or engineer troubleshooting network problems of any kind.

Endpoint Security
This book makes the assumption that if we've been doing the same thing for years and we continue to fail then we must be doing something wrong. Some basic assumption about what we're doing and why we're doing it is incorrect. Yes, incorrect. But we continue to behave as if nothing is wrong. The pain is there but now the problem is that...

The Burrows-Wheeler Transform: Data Compression, Suffix Arrays, and Pattern Matching
The Burrows-Wheeler Transform is a text transformation scheme that has found applications in different aspects of the data explosion problem, from data compression to index structures and search. The BWT belongs to a new class of compression algorithms, distinguished by its ability to perform compression by sorted contexts. More recently, the BWT...

How to Think About Algorithms
There are many algorithm texts that provide lots of well-polished code and proofs of correctness. This book is not one of them. Instead, this book presents insights, notations, and analogies to help the novice describe and think about algorithms like an expert. By looking at both the big picture and easy step-by-step methods for developing...
