San Francisco, CA (March 23, 2017)—Practical Packet Analysis is a perennial best seller with more than 25,000 copies sold. Today, No Starch Press, the respected market leader in computer security books, announces a highly anticipated third edition to the book that’s been making sense of Wireshark (the world’s most popular network sniffer) for more than a decade.
In Practical Packet Analysis (No Starch Press, $49.95, 368 pp., April 2017), readers learn how to analyze, understand, and troubleshoot problems on any network. This revised and expanded third edition is updated for Wireshark 2.x and IPv6, making it a must for the ever-growing number of programmers, InfoSec professionals, penetration testers, and network administrators who need to make sense of their networks. New chapters on the powerful command line packet analyzers tcpdump and TShark as well as even more real-world scenarios teach readers how to take a deeper dive into network analysis.
“Practical Packet Analysis is for people who need to solve network issues, troubleshoot latency, or investigate security threats,” says author Chris Sanders. “Capturing packets is easy, but understanding them isn’t. My book was the first of its kind a decade ago, and the approach I’ve taken is unlike any other book on the topic.”
In Practical Packet Analysis, readers learn how to:
- Monitor networks in real time
- Recognize common network protocols, including TCP, IPv4 and IPv6, SMTP, and ARP
- Quickly navigate through large numbers of packets
- Troubleshoot and resolve common network problems, like loss of connectivity, DNS issues, and sluggish speeds
- Understand how modern exploits and malware behave at the packet level
- Use advanced Wireshark features to understand confusing captures
Practical Packet Analysis will be in bookstores everywhere next month.
