Garland Technology will be attending the Sharkfest ’14 Wireshark Developer and User Conference, to be held from June 16 to June 20 at the Dominican University of California in San Rafael. During the four-day conference, members of Wireshark and user communities will learn how to use and implement the free data packet analyzer designed for network security use, troubleshooting procedures, and data analysis.
In addition, Garland’s portable and aggregating TAPs have proven as a superior choice for use with Wireshark.
Vinton Cerf, who boasts accolades including the National Medal of Technology, Turning Award, and Presidential Medal of Freedom, will be the 2014 Sharkfest keynote speaker and will present on Tuesday, June 17. Cerf was the co-designer of TCP/IP protocols and is considered to be one of the main architects of the Internet, commonly referred to as one of the original fathers of the web.
Tim O’Neill, Chief Contributing and Technology Editor for LoveMyTool, as well as a contributor to Garland Technology’s blog, white papers, and technical resources. O’Neill will discuss the past and present trends of the Internet and associated security features (or lack thereof) on Wednesday, June 18. O’Neill is a Senior IEEE member and has more than 45 years of experience in test and analyses markets, such as RF, WAN, Analog, ISDN, ATM, and more.
Co-Owner and CEO Chris Bihary, who will be attending the event and available for meetings, said “Technology platforms are always changing, as are new threats to network security, which is why the meeting of the minds is crucial for sharing tweaked processes, problem-solving procedures, and other adaptive issues. Stay tuned – we’ll be sharing our new knowledge within our team and with our clients to ensure an even stronger network TAP security system. That being said, the opportunity to learn from the two keynote speakers is a great one and we hope many take advantage of it.”
Additional topics to be covered will include processes for implementing and using the Wireshark platform, best practices for aggregating data packets, troubleshooting performance applications, Wi-Fi threats and counter measures, and tricks for troubleshooting.
Wireshark is a network protocol analyzer that works on a global scale. It is a three-pane packet browser and allows the live capture and offline analysis of data, which can be run on multi-platforms such as Linux, OS X, Windows, Solaris, NetBSD, and FreeBSD.
