DC801 - Snort Class
Saturday, February 9, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM (PST)
Salt Lake City, UT
Gartner once famously published a paper declaring "IDS is Dead" but since when does anyone outside of non technical management listen to Gartner? Exactly. Thats why IDS and IPS (from here on out referred to as "I[DP]S") are still alive, thriving, and becoming more advanced. In this class, we will cover not only the most notorious I[DP]S but the most prevalent in the InfoSec world. Why is it so prevalent? Because it is fully open source and highly customizable. If you are looking for a job, it is good to have Snort on there.
Topics of this class include:
Before attending this class, you will need to have a basic level understanding of Networking (TCP/IP) and basic Linux CLI.
Who Should Attend?:
Anyone who meets the Prereqs.
What to Bring:
A Laptop with something that can import OVA virtual machines (Virtual Box does this quite nicely and is cross platform).
The full course should take about 4 hours.
The Space located at: 440 S 700 E #102 Salt Lake City, UT 84401
All money raised from this class will be going towards keeping the space a float.
