Issue/Introduction

There is a nanosecond-resolution packet capture file (PCAP) which needs to be imported into Security Analytics, but the import is not successful.

"The selected file is invalid."

Error: The selected file is invalid

Cause

Security Analytics can only import nanosecond-resolution packet capture files when they are in PCAPNG format. It cannot import that resolution when the data is in a PCAP format file.

Resolution

Convert the file from PCAP to PCAPNG prior to importing the data into Security Analytics.
