Adam Ringwood gave tonight’s presentation on the basics of Wireshark. Adam began by talking about TCP/IP, and explaining how network addressing and subnetting works. Topics covered about wireshark included basic filtering techniques, how to export objects from the data in the captured packets, how to follow TCP streams and what to look for when searching for attacks. The hands on segment consisted of challenges, wherein the members had to find specific details in several different .pcap files using the techniques discussed earlier.

Welcome to ISUSec, Illinois State University's information security club. We are a registered student organization aimed towards hackers and information security enthusiasts. ISUSec is the first hacker community at ISU and the surrounding area. ISUSec is also the home of ISU's CCDC team. Our primary focus is hands on learning. We generally have a student presentation every week, and a professional presentation once a month.
Why Create ISUSec?
There were quite a few reasons as to why ISUSec was created. Gaining more knowledge in the field of information security was one reason; applying the theory from class in a practical manner was an even better reason. Beyond learning everything information security related, we wanted to create as well as encourage a hacker culture both on and off campus. It's something that was missing in the area. To be successful at this, we need to connect with and ask the information security community for support. By doing that, we can develop professional relationships with well known information security companies and individuals.
