Students will use utilize two virtual machines, inside a protected network, to observe configuration changes on a known good / clean system and all of the unusual network traffic generated by the suspect software they will be analyzing. On the clean system they will use Regshot, Argon Network Switcher, Process Hacker, Process Monitor and Noriben to gather details on what the suspicious program is actually doing. On another support machine they will set up a fake DNS server to receive all suspicious traffic, and pass that traffic over to Wireshark for further analysis. This lab will continue to foster tool familiarization and will provide the students an introduction to capturing network traffic by using a simple "man-in-the-middle" system.
