This exercise involves downloading and analyzing a PCAP file using Wireshark. The file contains a single HTTP POST request, and your task is to extract the key from the POST parameters. You'll learn about the structure of an HTTP POST request, including the headers and body, and how to use Wireshark to follow a TCP stream.

Additionally, you will see how the server responds to the POST request and understand the HTTP response codes, specifically the 405 Method Not Allowed error. By the end of this lab, you'll be able to navigate through network dumps, reconstruct TCP connections, and identify crucial data within HTTP requests.
