Successful protocol analysis in modern network structures

Hunting the Invisible

Conclusions

Virtual networks and server structures require additional mechanisms to ensure visibility of the data streams. It makes no difference whether the virtual machines are implemented on one physical host or distributed across multiple physical hosts – the data streams can no longer be captured for monitoring, analysis, or control. To ensure successful monitoring, it is important to correlate events at the physical and logical level. This task can be handled by a visibility structure that, at the same time, gives the IT department access to critical information.

    Microsoft provides some interesting virtualization features in current and future versions of Windows Server. You can connect or isolate virtual machines, and Windows Server 2016 even supports virtual switches.
  • Segmenting networks with VLANs
    Network virtualization takes very different approaches at the software and hardware levels to divide or group network resources into logical units independent of the physical layer. It is typically a matter of implementing secure strategies. We show the technical underpinnings of VLANs.
  • Software-defined networking with Windows Server 2016
    Windows Server 2016 takes a big step toward software-defined networking, with the Network Controller server role handling the centralized management, monitoring, and configuration of network devices and virtual networks. This service can also be controlled with PowerShell and is particularly interesting for Hyper-V infrastructures.
