Cloud & Internet of Things (IoT) Analysis and Security


This course is designed for Networking and Security personnel that need to develop a set of packet investigation techniques through study of the Cloud and IoT networking Protocols using Wireshark and other Open-Source Analysis tools. Successful completion of this course will provide these individuals with a path-way into the field of both Network and Forensics Analysis.

Recommended Course Prerequisites

For maximum effectiveness, attendees should have at least basic familiarity with TCP/IP networking and basic network infrastructure devices such as Switches, Routers, etc. Attendees will also be required to bring their own laptop.

Course Description

The emerging technologies of Network Cloud Computing, Cloud Storage and Internet of Things enabled devices are among the recent advances in Networking. Effective analysis and troubleshooting such advanced technologies encompasses the skills of not only capturing data, but also the ability to discern unusual patterns hidden within seemingly normal network traffic. This course will provide the student with a set of investigate and analysis techniques focusing on the use of vendor-neutral, Open-Source Tools such as Wireshark to provide insight into the following areas:

  • Specialized and advanced packet capture tips
  • Recognition, analysis and threat recognition for a many of the next generation Cloud and IoT technologies including Cloud Computing / Virtualization / IEEE 802.15 Bluetooth / IEEE 802.15.4 ZigBee / IEEE 802.16e WiMAX / Home RF / ZWave / RFID / Infrared / PBCC / 3G / 4G / 5G
  • Specialized Analysis techniques including data traffic reconstruction and viewing techniques.
