Join Marc Menninger for an in-depth discussion in this video Network sniffing tool demo: Wireshark, part of Performing a Technical Security Audit and Assessment.
- [Narrator] In this scenario, a user will login…to a website, and I'll use Wireshark…which is installed on Kali Linux…as the network sniffing tool to capture…and analyze the traffic.…I'll start by launching Wireshark…on a system that will be the source…of the traffic we're monitoring.…I'll go to Applications, Sniffing and Spoofing,…and Wireshark.…You may get an error.…If you do, just click OK.…I'll tell Wireshark to capture all packets…crossing the ethernet zero interface…by double-clicking on the eth0 filter.…
Wireshark is now in capture mode…as we can see from the status messages…at the top and bottom of the Wireshark window.…Then I'll go to a website that requires me to login.…In this case, I'll go to a site I know…doesn't encrypt the transmission of user credentials,…the DVWA site on the Metasploitable VM.…I'll login with credentials I know will work…which are the username admin…and the password password.…Now I'll go back to Wireshark.…
I'll stop the capture and look at the results.…I'll expand the window with all the packets.…
