In this exercise, you will learn how to analyze a network dump using Wireshark to inspect an insecure rlogin connection. The provided PCAP file contains the details of this connection, including the username and password sent in cleartext. By using Wireshark's "Follow TCP Stream" feature, you can easily extract these credentials.

rlogin is an outdated protocol that transmits credentials without encryption, making it inherently insecure. This exercise emphasizes the importance of using secure methods for remote logins. By the end of this lab, you will have a deeper understanding of network traffic analysis and the vulnerabilities associated with insecure protocols.
