Networks are susceptible to many different types of attacks, including the denial of service attacks and eavesdropping attacks discussed in earlier videos. In this video, learn the details of advanced networking attacks, including the Christmas Tree Attack, DNS and ARP poisoning, domain hijacking, and typosquatting.
- [Instructor] Networks are susceptible…to many different types of attack.…In the last video, you saw how eavesdropping attacks…might compromise the network,…to listen in on and tamper with communications.…Now, let's move on to the details…of advanced networking attacks,…including the Christmas tree attack,…DNS and ARP poisoning, and typosquatting.…Packets are the basic unit of network communications.…Each time you request a web page, send an email,…or transfer other information over the network,…it's divided up into small packets of information…that are then reassembled at the receiving system.…
Packets carry a data payload,…but also must include header information.…You can think of a packet header as the envelope…that carries the data.…It includes information like the source…and destination addresses.…Headers also include flags.…These are single bit fields that contain…either a one or a zero.…If a field flag is set to one,…it indicates a special purpose packet.…For example, the SYN flag is used…to set up a new connection.…
