Network Sniffing

A sniffer is a program/device that monitors data traveling over a network. Sniffers can be used both for legitimate network management and for stealing information off a network. Unauthorized sniffers can be dangerous to a network's security as they are virtually impossible to detect. In this course we will examine the process of sniffing, including active and passive sniffing.

What you will learn:

  • Explain the network sniffing process
