Overview

Introduction: Network Miner is a premium Cybrary interactive lab intended for students at the beginner level. This interactive lab teaches students the use of the Network Miner tool, pcap file analysis and extracting potentially malicious files from packet captures. These tasks will help students learn to use the Network Miner Open Source tool, how to analyze pcap files and how to extract potentially malicious files from packet captures. This is important to the work roles of Cyber Operator, Cyber Defense Incident Responder, SOC Analyst, and Counterintelligence Forensics Analyst. Upon completion of this lab, the student will be able to use Network Miner, analyze pcap files and extract potentially malicious files from packet captures. Network Miner takes 30 - 45 minutes to complete

Skill/Activity Breakdown The Network Miner interactive lab requires students to use the Network Miner tool. Network Miner is, as described on their website, “an open source Network Forensics Analysis Tool (NFAT) for Windows (but also works in Linux / Mac OS X / FreeBSD)” This develops the use of Network Miner for investigation, analysis and response to cyber incidents. The use of Network Miner is important for the Cyber Defense Incident Responder and SOC Analyst work role.

The pcap file analysis requires students to use the Network Miner tool. This develops the use of pcap file analysis for tactical forensics analysis, analysis and response to cyber incidents. The use of Network Miner is important for the Cyber Operator, Cyber Defense Incident Responder and SOC Analyst work role.

The extraction of potentially malicious files from packet captures requires students to use the Network Miner tool. This develops the extraction of potentially malicious files for tactical forensics analysis, investigation of computer-based crimes associated with cyber intrusion incidents. The extraction of potentially malicious files is important for the Cyber Defense Incident Responder, Counterintelligence Forensics Analyst and SOC Analyst work role.

Network miner provides an introduction to the use of the network miner open source tool. In this lab, students will use network miner to open and analyze a previously captured pcap file. The students will learn to identify possible malicious files, extract them, compare hashes and analyze them.
By completing the Network Miner interactive lab, the student will learn the use of the Network Miner tool, pcap analysis and the extraction of potentially malicious files. Learning these skills will help students learn to use the network miner tool, pcap file analysis and extraction of potentially malicious files. This is important for the Cyber Operators, Cyber Defense Incident Responder, SOC Analyst and Counterintelligence Forensics Analyst roles. Conclusion: The Network Miner interactive lab is presented by Cybrary and was created by CyberScore. This lab develops skills in Network Miner, pcap file analysis and extraction of potentially malicious files. This lab would be beneficial for students on the SOC Analyst career path. Completing the lab means the students can use the Network Miner tool, analyze pcap files and extract potentially malicious files.
