CACE Technologies Celebrates Wireshark(R) Milestone

2008-07-14 05:00:00

The Open Source Project Formerly Known as Ethereal Turns 10

DAVIS, Calif.–(EMWNews)–CACE Technologies, Inc., developer

of tools to enhance the Wireshark user experience and primary sponsor of

the Wireshark development effort, today celebrates the 10th

anniversary of the inception of the project that spawned the worlds

most popular and widely-deployed network analyzer.

To mark the day, Gerald Combs, Ethereal/Wireshark project founder, CACE,

and Wireshark University have announced the roll-out of the Wireshark

Certification Program and plans for the SHARKFEST 09

conference, which will take place on the Stanford campus in June of 2009.

In my wildest dreams, I never imagined that

Wireshark would be as enthusiastically received as it has been over the

past ten years, states Gerald Combs. I

have watched the number of downloads grow from a few thousand a month to

well over 300,000 today. The success of the analyzer is due to an

incredibly devoted group of developer contributors around the globe who

work closely with me to continually add new features and capabilities to

the tool to maintain its relevance and usefulness in modern, evolving

network environments. One of the reasons we created the SHARKFEST event

is to bring them together and show our appreciation for their efforts.

SHARKFEST 09, just announced officially, will

be the second occurrence of what is intended to be an annual conference

for Wireshark developers and users. This year, as with the inaugural

event, there will be three program tracks: Developer, Advanced User, and

General User. Unlike last year, there will be fewer sessions per track,

allowing more time for presentations and discussions, and duplications

of some of the more popular sessions. There will also be more panel and

open discussion forums.

John Bruno, CEO of CACE, offers, Were

very excited about the next SHARKFEST conference. We learned a lot from

the first one, and will incorporate the feedback received from last years

attendees to make this an even better event. The Stanford campus will be

the perfect venue, allowing us to increase the number of participants

while maintaining a richly educational association with our conference.

The development of a certification program for Wireshark also speaks to

the maturity of the project. Certification programs are prompted by a

demand from the user base to gain professional recognition for their

knowledge of, and skill with, a particular product. Wireshark now joins

the ranks of many commercial analyzers with certification programs that

test the expertise of their user base and award recognition to those who

prove capable of successfully completing a process that vets their

knowledge of these tools. Laura Chappell, the creator of the program, is

an industry maven, world-class packet analyst, network troubleshooting,

security, and forensics diva, and lauded trainer and consultant. To
