This project is designed to introduce the students to Wireshark and the applications this technology has in IT. You will have used Wireshark on the Raspberry Pi to detect incoming traffic then have captured the data; then taken that data and filtered it for further inspection. Wireshark is an extremely powerful tool, and this project is just scratching the surface of what you can achieve with it. IT Professionals use Wireshark to debug network protocol implementations, examine security problems and inspect network protocol internals. Also, keep in mind that the Raspberry Pi is limited in processing power and is unable to handle large volumes of traffic accurately. As such, it should not be used in production environments. I hope you found this tutorial helpful and discovered a new use for your Raspberry Pi.
