Workshop #1: Hello Terminal and Tools

Learn to navigate the terminal and use cyber tools.

Come join us for our first workshop of the semester! We will cover a variety of terminal commands used in the capture the flag (CTF) competition. We will also go over using Wireshark, a tool for analyzing network packets and also used in CTF. Even if not participating in CTF, the terminal session will be useful for those who work in software development and general IT.

Members are encouraged to bring a laptop to follow along. Software to install:

  1. Wireshark
    • Mac and Windows: download
    • Ubuntu (linux): enter the commands below in the terminal
        sudo add-apt-repository ppa:wireshark-dev/stable
        sudo apt update
        sudo apt install wireshark
  2. Ubuntu Terminal (only for windows users)
    • You can install the Ubuntu terminal on Windows through the Microsoft Store. Directions are here.
