PCAP badge


This challenge is part of the PCAP badge, where you will need to use Wireshark to analyze network traffic and find a specific key. The exercise involves downloading a PCAP file, which contains various packets including ICMP, DNS, and TCP traffic. The goal is to identify the correct TCP stream that holds the key for the exercise.

In this scenario, additional noise has been introduced to make the task more complex. By following the TCP stream in Wireshark, you will see the content of the file that was retrieved, which contains the key. Filtering the TCP port that was used during the passive mode will help in narrowing down the right packet among the noise. This exercise will enhance your skills in network traffic analysis and key retrieval using Wireshark.
