Introducing Jake Williams

Packet Analysis with Jake Williams

In this video series, SANS Instructor, US-Army Veteran, and experienced cybersecurity practitioner, "Malware Jake" Williams, provides a hands-on introduction to analyzing common network protocols - HTTP, RDP, SMTP/IMAP and CIFS. Jake uses Wireshark to examine packet traces and along the way shares some invaluable "power-user" Wireshark tips-and-tricks.

Looking at each of these common protocols in turn, Jake demonstrates: 

  • How the protocol works 
  • What "normal" traffic looks like 
  • Indicators of compromise to look out for 
  • How attackers can hide evidence of their activity in common traffic 

This is an ideal series of videos for those new to packet analysis and network forensics. But even experienced packet analysts will be sure to learn something new.
