In an eavesdropping attack, attackers snoop on network communications, overhearing information that they might not be authorized to see. Learn about the various types of eavesdropping attacks that malicious individuals might use to jeopardize the confidentiality of information.
- [Instructor] In some cases an attacker…can gain physical or logical access to the network,…and eavesdrop on communications between two systems.…These attacks can be especially dangerous,…because they allow the attacker…to potentially decrypt encrypted communications…and view confidential information…without the sender's knowledge or consent.…All eavesdropping attacks require some compromise…of the communications path between a client…and a server.…This might include tapping into a network device or cable…or conducting a DNS or ARP poisoning attack…to trick a system into sending traffic…directly to an attacker…instead of the intended recipient.…
Let's look at two attacks based upon eavesdropping,…man in the middle attacks and replay attacks.…Here's how most people imagine…web communication takes place.…The user running a web browser…initiates a connection to a server…located somewhere off in a data center.…The reality is that those communications travel…over many network connections along the way.…Any one of the devices in the middle…
