Learn about communication channel issues, the risks associated with them, and how to avoid them.
- In a client server architecture there is always a risk…of a security vulnerability existing…in the communication channel between the two systems.…Because of the way TCPIP works,…these communication channels are potential hotspots…for attackers to exploit.…The most common communication channel attack…is the theft of sensitive information on the wire.…An attacker who can gain access to the network…of either the client or the server…can potentially steal the information on that channel.…
Many businesses, for instance, provide free wifi,…which is left open and unencrypted.…This can become a hot bed of theft…and your development team…needs to proactively protect your customer.…Unfortunately some users may set their devices…to always trust and connect to public wifi systems,…making the ability to spoof these SSIDs an attack vector.…
A spoofing attack is actually simple to prevent…through the use of proper transport layer security, or TLS,…because the attacker has to man in the middle…TLS connections to steal the data,…
