NETworkshop / Julian Oliver & Danja Vasiliev
In this intensive, two-day workshop students learn how to manipulate computer networks and how they can be used to manipulate us.
By learning about routing, addressing, core protocols, network analysis, network packet capture and dissection, students become dexterous and empowered users of computer networks.
In day two of the workshop students learn to read network topologies as political control structures, seeing how corporations and governments shape and control the way we use computer networks. Students learn to study these power structures by tracing the flow of packets as they pass over land and sea.
Students will interact with a remote computer on the Internet using just the command line: analysing network routes, sending and receiving messages and learning how they can use that computer as a means to reach machines on internal, non-Internet networks.
Oliver and Vasiliev provide all students with a customised virtualised Linux operating system, complete with tools familiar to both the hacker and network engineer alike. Complete documentation is provided.
No prior knowledge of computer networking or programming is required.
The workshop will run from 3 – 4 Oct, 10am to 6pm at DoES Liverpool.
