In this lab, you'll practice creating network traffic and inspecting the behavior of ICMP traffic. When you're finished, you'll have a fundamental understanding on how to find anomalies within ICMP.
Terms and conditions apply.
Getting Started in the Lab Environment
Here are the initial instructions and explanation of the lab environment. Read this while your environment is busy creating itself from nothing. Yes, this violates physics; we know. How fun!
Analyzing ICMP Messages
In this challenge, you'll send some simple ICMP messages and begin to analyze the protocol behavior.
Types, Codes, and Errors
This challenge will have you taking a closer look at the types, codes, and how ICMP handles error messaging.
Detecting ICMP Tunneling
This challenge takes a look at a malicious ICMP tunneling example and explores how to detect the activity.
