The purpose of this workshop is to provide the knowledge and skills to get over the initial learning hump to enable and encourage further learning about networking, including securing networks. These techniques can be used on home and production networks.
This workshop is aimed at SysAdmins, students and anyone interested in learning more about networking; after all, networks are the only element that is present in every IT environment globally, regardless of location, size, software used and industry.
In this workshop, attendees will learn:
1. How to create a free, vendor neutral, network lab environment without the need of any other hardware other then a laptop.
2. A working understanding of the OSI model, what each layer does and the considerations for design, security and monitoring should be taken for each of them.
3. Techniques and the theory behind network defences to reduce the effect of security events, increase their ability to detect issues and protect against common attack methods, such as reconnaissance and lateral movement.
4. A basic understanding to use tools such a Scapy to craft packets and Wireshark to be able to test their network security measures are effective.

What you need to bring:
A laptop running Windows and have admin rights, with at least 4Gb RAMM (ideally 8GB) and 25Gb of storage, a PDF reader application and a Spreadsheet application (just a reader will suffice) are also recommended.
The applications used in the workshop are:
VMware Workstation, GNS3, Wireshark, Kali Linux and Scapy
