Part 1

  1. View "Intrusion Detection System (IDS) Lab – Installing Suricata" within the Video Playlist: Technology Implementation of Security Solutions, located in Class Resources.

  1. Summarize the issues encountered, lessons learned, and successes in a bullet point format.
  2. Describe the screenshots provided.
  3. Describe the methodologies used in network forensics. Include packet capture, deep packet inspection, and the analysis of protocols.
  4. Analyze and decipher network traffic, identify anomalous or malicious activity, and provide a summary of the effects on the system.
  5. Describe how analytic methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative, could leverage the IDS to predict and communicate network anomalies.
