CACE Technologies, Inc., developer of tools to enhance the Wireshark user experience, along with Wireshark University, announced the rollout of The Wireshark Certification Program. This new program strives to test a candidate's knowledge and ability to troubleshoot, optimize and secure a network based on evidence found by analyzing traffic captured with the world’s most popular and widely-deployed analyzer, Wireshark.
Laura Chappell, Founder of the Protocol Analysis Institute and Wireshark University, states, “There has been tremendous pent-up demand for a certification program for Wireshark. The enormous number of Wireshark users, along with the growing acceptance of open source in the large enterprise has led to this day. Enterprises no longer see the sense in spending large amounts for commercial packet analyzers when they experience the strength and breadth of Wireshark’s feature set for managing their network. Deployment of Wireshark has become so prevalent that a certification program just makes sense. Hundreds of thousands of people use this product and a considerable percentage of that population would like to prove their proficiency and enjoy the recognition that certification brings.”
“This is a natural progression for Wireshark users and a significant event for the Wireshark community,” adds Gerald Combs, Wireshark creator and Director of Open Source Projects for CACE Technologies. “Being certified as a Wireshark expert confirms your understanding of the use of the analyzer and your effectiveness as a network and data analyst. The fact that Laura Chappell designed the program assures its relevance and credibility. Laura’s thorough grasp of Wireshark, network troubleshooting, and network security, have gone into the creation of a certification process that measures true knowledge and skills.”
Wireshark Certification Schedule
The certification process is now in the testing stage, and will be rolled out to the general public in August. You can sign up for information on certification at www.wiresharkU.com/certification.
Wireshark Certification Administration - VLabSource
Wireshark University is collaborating with VLabSource and their virtual lab environment to deliver the certification test. Using PC virtualization technology, VLabSource will enable a Wireshark Certification Program candidate to log into a web-based interactive virtual lab environment and launch a real instance of Wireshark on a virtual network. “Wireshark University’s goal is to ensure that every person certified under the Wireshark Certification Program has the skills they need to troubleshoot and analyze a real network,” said Laura Chappell, principal founder of Wireshark University. “Our partnership with VLabSource will help us achieve that goal by providing web-based tests that provide real life network analysis tasks.”
Preparation for Certification
Four Wireshark University courses in DVD format written by Laura Chappell provide excellent preparation for the certification test, as do classes offered by Wireshark University. Classes include trace files, details on troubleshooting techniques, and case studies, and are delivered by a group of instructors hand-picked by Laura, all with years of packet-level experience. In addition, Laura works closely with Gerald Combs (original creator of Ethereal/Wireshark) and Loris Degioanni (original author of WinPcap) to build the most current and complete educational materials to support Wireshark and those interested in learning how to use the open source tool to best advantage. The training DVDs can be purchased directly from the Wireshark University site at www.wiresharkU.com or from CACE Technologies’ catalog page at www.cacetech.com/products/catalog.
Pricing for the Certification Test
The price for the Wireshark certification test is US $299. Sign up to receive certification test details at www.wiresharkU.com/certification.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
