  • Packet Sniffing for Image Capture and Extraction

Lab time: It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.


The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • Cloud Computing

Exercise 1 - Packet Sniffing for Passwords

Many protocols display information in plaintext which is not a secure method for transmission. Telnet is one of the primary communication and contention protocols used for essentially any enabled computing device. Most Routers, Switches, and Servers will have this function. However, that doesn’t mean it’s been enabled.

Exercise 2 - Packet Sniffing for Image Capture and Extraction

Through traffic capture, Wireshark can be used to view all information during transit, if this data is unencrypted such as images flowing to a device, Wireshark will record them and save the traffic information which can be extracted into Jpeg formats for by an analyst.
