Sharkfest 2018 EU
I’m back from Sharkfest EU 2018 and once again it was a great conference. This time, many core developers and instructors brought their families along, so it felt even more like a family gathering than ever before.
Installing Moloch on Debian 9 Stretch
Moloch is a tool that builds on Elasticsearch to process large numbers of network packets, either from a live network or from imported PCAP files. This is how I installed it on a Debian 9 server.
Sharkfest 2017 EU Recap

Sharkfest 2017 US Recap – 10 years of Sharkfest!
Time always flies at Sharkfest, the annual Wireshark conference, and the 2017 edition – being the 10th Sharkfest in the US – has been no exception. On Friday Sake and me talked about how fast the 3 day conference had felt and we both agreed that “hm, it seems just to have started moments ago […]

Other than the “normal” challenges you could find at The Reef it was not limited to the size of 100MB, and the solution cannot be reduced to a couple of words or numbers. After Sharkfest I was asked if […]
Sharkfest 2015 recap
“Jasper, do you have a minute?” I think that is the one sentence that I heard most at Sharkfest 2015, which is the annual Wireshark developer and user conference.

Sharkfest 2014 Recap
Sharkfest 2014 is over, and once again it was an amazing conference. It was probably the best of them for me, for a number of reasons:
