Intrusion Detection Training

Course Code: IFIS CDE/01

About Course

This course delivers the technical knowledge, insight, and hands-on training you need to defend your network with confidence. You will learn about the underlying theory of TCP/IP and the most used application protocols, such as DNS and HTTP, so that you can intelligently examine network traffic for signs of an intrusion. You will get plenty of practice learning to master different open source tools like tcpdump, Wireshark, Snort, Bro, tshark, and SiLK.


Prior condition for this course

Students must have at least a working knowledge of TCP/IP and hexadecimal.

Learning Outcomes

In this course, you will learn;

  • Configure and run open source Snort and write Snort signatures
  • Configure and run open source Bro to provide a hybrid traffic analysis framework
  • Understand TCP/IP component layers to identify normal and abnormal traffic
  • Use open source traffic analysis tools to identify signs of an intrusion
  • Comprehend the need to employ network forensics to investigate traffic to identify a possible intrusion
  • Use Wireshark to carve out suspicious file attachments
  • Write tcpdump filters to selectively examine a particular traffic trait
  • Craft packets with Scapy
